I have sad news to report. The Film Experience has lost its chief patron who underwrote some of our expenses due to a shift in their personal economy (plus our ad revenue was down this year). This won't mean anything to you reading (at least immediately) but in order to insure our continued success as we scramble to find other income streams, we do need more funds than usual for dull things like rent and food and exciting things like film festivals and tech improvements on the chart pages and better microphones for the podcast and so on. We're working on solutions to further monetize the site beyond the occasional movie ad and hopefully we'll start selling ebooks or other items. We'll have more time to figure this out after the Oscars. But for now there are two things you can do to help.
One: Shop at Amazon under our affiliate program. Next time you need to buy something -- anything -- just click from here (ads to your left) to purchase it. I'd love to see if this is a feasible option for extra funds
Two: Become a patron of the site by setting up a monthly donation. If you'd like to sponsor a particular series rather than just donating in this general way, please notate that on your donation so we can direct the funds accordingly. So whether you love the Oscar coverage, actress-obsessing, theme weeks, retrospectives, random silliness, or any of our weekly series show your love. There are two ways to donate, subscription (which is wonderful as its steady and something we can count on) or a one time donation.
Our fundraising goal is 500 patron saints - We'll keep a tally to the right hand so you can see how we're doing at meeting that goal! Your suscription dimes make an enormous difference to The Film Experience.
C O N S I D E R . . .
For those who can't commit to a dime a day, consider a one time donation.
