Artists often have the sensation that their work, once finished, doesn’t belong to them anymore, yet the responsibility to steward the release of that work can last a lifetime. This is especially true in the artform of independent film. The process can go on for decades—a good thing!
For a film like Praying the Hours, success is not measured by the number of people reached or box office figures but rather the quality and depth of impact. BHP films tend to spark conversation, to nudge new thought, to keep people thinking about a new thing past the theater parking lot.
Though the approach is different than marketing a studio film, it still represents a lot of time, work, and expense. Costs might include travel expenses, festival submissions, theater rentals, small group hosting costs, support software, overhead, or projection deliverables.
If you’d be interested in helping offset some of those costs, we’d be grateful.
