This Idea's funding campaign is over
You'll get a special thanks on the Aflamnah website!
We’ll immortalize your name in our film with a ‘Thank You’ credit in the closing credits and grant you bragging rights that you helped expose Los Angelenos — and eventually, the world — to the people of Ain el-Helweh.
You’ll get a crisp physical copy of the A WORLD NOT OURS poster, as well as a digital high resolution version (which, by the way, would make a wonderful Facebook profile pic!). We’ll also give you a ‘Thank You’ credit. Before you set the poster as your profile pic we recommend you photoshop your credit – IN BIG BOLD LETTERS -- in the credits section.
You will get a limited edition, unlimitedly fashionable Nakba FilmWorks t-shirt, which is secretly a marketing trojan horse because people (but not too many people) will ask you what “Nakba FilmWorks” is and you’ll inevitably have to mention our movie. Plus you get that ‘Thank You’ credit, so you can still brag away (Note: Unisex! All sizes and a range of colours available!)
It sucks that most of you haven’t seen our film (no worldwide distribution – yet!), but you can scratch that itch with two tickets to a theatrical screening of A WORLD NOT OURS in London, New York or Los Angeles. The film-makers might also be there too, in which case you should totally corner them for an autograph or awkwardly inquire about the dietary restrictions of their intern Scruffy the dog. (Note: airfare and accommodation is not included.)
You’ll get a digital copy of A WORLD NOT OURS with loads of bonus material, such as never-before-seen footage, and a ‘Thank You’ credit! There’s no greater compliment to a filmmaker than a viewer wanting to own their baby. I can only think of inappropriate punchlines to follow up that sentence, so let’s skip to the next contribution. (Note: we won’t be able to send you the film until after our Oscar qualifying quest, as per the Academy’s restrictions.)
The trifecta, hat trick, triple threat: you get a digital copy of A WORLD NOT OURS with loads of bonus material; one Nakba FilmWorks t-shirt; and a ‘Thank You’ credit.
This is a special one: you’ll get a Palestinian handicraft from the Ain El-Helweh cultural centre. It’s like owning a prop from the movie! You’ll also get a digital copy of the film with bonus material; proof that Nakba FilmWorks is no one-trick pony in the form of digital copies of their latest short film XENOS (premiering in Berlin competition this February); and, of course, a ‘Thank You’ credit.
You’ll get to meet the team behind the film, virtually or in the flesh. The Nakba FilmWorks posse will have a Skype or in-person discussion (subject to location) with you on anything related to A WORLD NOT OURS: experiences making the film, filmmaking process, cinematic influences, etc. You’ll also receive a digital copy of the film with bonus material, and their latest short film XENOS.
Nakba FilmWorks will review your documentary treatment and/or script, and help reduce your chances of getting rejected by heartless film funds and soul-crushing financiers (if all else fails — crowdfund ;)). Nakba FilmWorks will gently, constructively provide you with written feedback and a 30-minute phone consultation. You also get a digital copy of the film with bonus material and the brand-new short film XENOS, which you may or may not want to compare your work to.
A truly unique and potentially life-changing experience: a trip to Ain El-Helweh, Lebanon, where Mahdi will give you the chance to visit his childhood home and introduce you to some of his friends and family featured in the film. Also included is the digital copy of the film with bonus material and NFW’s short film XENOS. (Note: please contact us prior to contributing, as there are a few caveats concerning the visit. The trip will likely take place between April and June 2014, but this timeframe is flexible. (Note: airfare and accommodation not included).
You don’t have to be a billionaire to buy your way into the film industry! You’ll get an Associate Producer credit on A WORLD NOT OURS; two tickets to a theatrical screening of the film in London, New York or Los Angeles; and an invitation to a post-screening event. (Note: airfare and accommodation not included.)
MOVE OVER MEDICI! You’ll get the prestigious Executive Producer credit on A WORLD NOT OURS and sponsorship incentives for your company/brand; a dinner with the Nakba FilmWorks team; two tickets to a theatrical screening of the film in London, New York or Los Angeles; an invitation to an exclusive post-screening event; a digital copy of the film with bonus material and NFW’s short film XENOS; a Nakba FilmWorks t-shirt; a physical and digital poster of the film; a souvenir from the Ain el-Helweh cultural centre; AND our undying love, affection and friendship until the end of time, if not longer. (Note: please contact us for more information on sponsorship incentives and for NFW approval. Airfare and accommodation not included.)
