Welcome to the
OPEN DOOR FILM PROJECT 2021
Elevating voices of the underrepresented community
For many years, people of color, women, the disabled, the LGBTQ+ community and people starting out over 40 have been underrepresented in positions of power and creative leadership in the film industry. Open Door Film Project changes that by giving a “seat at the table” to 8 emerging directors from these diverse backgrounds. In conjunction with major power players and advocacy organizations throughout the industry, and with the support of film lovers around the world, this groundbreaking project will hire the directors, provide international exposure, and direct contact with major Hollywood influencers. Traditionally marginalized talent will finally take center stage and be given the recognition they deserve. Let’s wake up Hollywood!! The time for waiting is over. The time for change is NOW.
We will be producing 8 Short Films to create 1 feature film Anthology. In a few weeks we will be launching our crowdfunding campaign to raise with a goal to raise $300,000. We hope you join us.
The Open Door Film Project is gearing up to launch a thrilling crowdfunding campaign to independently fund our Sci-fi Anthology, PROJECT 8.
PROJECT 8 is the story of a woman known only as 8, who after waking up from a cryogenic sleep finds that she is the property of a malevolent A.I. entity that wishes to subject her to an experiment in order to study human emotions. The stories in the anthology will serve as the emotional stimuli that the protagonist encounters throughout the experiment. As a whole, they will bridge the worlds between science-fiction, fantasy and even horror. Project 8 will be a deeply emotional and mind bending work of narrative fiction. Each story will be skillfully crafted by our amazing array of writers and directed by our equally divers selection of international, talented, award winning directors.
By raising these funds, we will be able to green light ourselves, helping to pave the way and open the door for a more projects, more talent, and a more inclusive presence.
How Can I Support?
The support of the film industry and the general public is vital to the success of the program. Through crowdfunding, sponsorship, and talent donations, we will be able to elevate the quality of the Open Door Film Project.
