Pozible Campaign: Target Reached!

Screen shot 2013-10-13 at 3.50.02 PMAs many of our followers probably already know, we have successfully reached our Pozible Campaign target of $2500! In fact we went over our target with a final total of $2795! We cannot express to all our friends, family and our friendly supporters how much this means to us and how much of a difference this will make to the 2013 Aperture Festival.

With less than 2 hours to go we received a generous donation from Hand Up AustraliaScreen shot 2013-10-13 at 3.48.03 PM which helped put us over our target goal. Hand Up Australia is a social enterprise that offers transformative and world-class international volunteer programs to youth and adults.

So, thank you Hand Up Australia and to all of our generous supporters and Pioneers! It’s been an exhausting but exciting journey. We couldn’t have done it without you. As a thank you please see our video below:

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 😉

APERTURE Festival Pozible Campaign is Launched!

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 1.58.44 PMThe APERTURE Festival has officially launched it’s Pozible Campaign! Pozible is a crowd funding platform and community-building tool for creative projects and ideas. It was developed to help people raise funds, realise their aspirations and make great things possible!

The APERTURE Festival is entirely run by passionate volunteers who have decided to devote their time and talents to planning and organising the first ever APERTURE Festival. Through our Pozible campaign we hope to raise $2500.00. If we reach this target, all of the money will go directly back into developing the festival via:

  1. Printing cost — festival programme, posters and banners
  2. Catering — we want to organise networking events, such as an opening night with refreshments!

We’re only asking the bare minimum but if we exceed our goal we can get more printing, more refreshments, team T-shirts, add more surprises to the goodie bags and do other things that make a festival awesome!

This campaign will ends on October 7, 2013.

Please watch our Pozible Campaign Video for more information and check out our Pozible Page to see what YOU can get in return!
