Last night the crowdfunding campaign for INVITATION TO DANCE ended with fireworks and hoorays! Together, we raised $30,700. We are humbled by your generosity, and feel deep gratitude toward each of you. You have given us the means to finish the film. The outpouring of support from such a broad spectrum of people proves that there is a ready audience for the film.
Once the film is finished, we will move on to distribution, film festival entry, and then begin screenings across the country and internationally. We will keep you updated on our progress and will continue to strengthen the community around the film and the many issues it raises.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

New York Women in Film and Television (NYWIFT) has been one of our staunchest supporters. Check out their website and you will see INVITATION TO DANCE featured there. Our film twice received NYWIFT’s Loreen Arbus Disability Awareness Grant.
Here are photos of Christian and Simi at the 2009 and 2011 NYWIFT Muse Awards luncheon where the awards were presented. The 2011 picture is with our friend and ally Loreen Arbus – an extraordinary advocate for disability rights.
Thank you, NYWIFT, for all that you do.
