We would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit their entries to the first ever Aperture Festival! This is the first year that the Aperture Festival will be held and we are overwhelmed with the response that we have received.

We received over 100 submissions from over 20 countries in Asia Pacific and beyond!

The selection process now begins. You can check out the full Selection team.

The official announcement of the festival program will take place in October. So be sure to stay up to date on our facebook, twitter and mailing list!

In the meanwhile, we have launched our crowdfunding campaign via Pozible. We have reached $300 of our $2500 target and are so grateful for the support we have received. However, we have not reached our goal yet. We need to reach our target of $2500 by October 7th, otherwise all the money donated thus far will be returned to our generous donators.

If you don’t know already, all the money raised through our Pozible Campaign will go directly back to the festival for food, drinks and other promotional material. None of the money raised will go to the APERTURE Team as we volunteer our time because we love ethnographic documentaries. We need YOUR help to make the first ever APERTURE Festival the best it can be.

We maintain our position on keeping the festival FREE and OPEN to the public. However, in order to do this, we do need some help…and you can help us by supporting us at our Pozible Campaign. Watch the video…it’s pretty fun 😉
