SoIllFilmClub will be screening “Blank Fortune” on Friday, July 20th at the Longbranch Coffeehouse (100 E. Jackson Street) in Carbondale, IL. The event will run from 6:00PM – 9:00PM and will encompass many films from filmmakers around the community.

“Blank Fortune” is now signed up on Kickstarter.com, the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. While the film has already been shot and is currently in the editing phase, the funds raised by Kickstarter will help cover High Definition Blu-Ray printing costs and projection rental equipment so we can show the film around Southern Illinois communities. Funding will also go towards promotion of the club in hopes of gaining new membership and community support that will help future projects and the expansion of So Ill Film Club as a forum for the study and practice of filmmaking.
Please check it out by clicking here. If the project is successfully funded, those who pledged will get their names in the credits and possibly more. See the link to Kickstarter for more details.
