Help take 1000 girl footballers to the movies to see “Goals for Girls”

afiche_ESWe finally finished “Goals for Girls: A story of women with balls” a feature documentary about female football (soccer) in Argentina. We started filming in 2008 and followed a team of girls from the Villa 31 shantytown as well as interviewed players from all walks of life.

After participating in Good Pitch Buenos Aires in August 2013 (a project of Sundance Institute and Britdoc) we decided that not only did we want to take the girls who participated in the film (and their families) to see it on the big screen, but we also wanted to take as many female players from poor neighborhoods as possible.

If you can donate more, we will get you cool prizes like a copy of the film, a cool football jersey, and even tickets to the premier. And if you donate half of our goal, we will film your wedding/birthday party/make a video for you company! Yes, two filmmakers will make the best video ever, and you will spend market price, but also help almost 500 girls go to the movies!

You can donate from anywhere in the world and instructions are in English:
