We started a fundraising campaign for CAMBOFEST: Film and Video Festival of Cambodia a few days ago, and we’ll be continuing through the end of May. Luckily, the first contributors have arrived already!

After our first two days, our new supporters include:

Martin Zweiback, Santa Monica CA

James Higgins, Lowell MA

Helge Cramer, GERMANY

…while Cambofest 2008 filmmakers Ronnie Cramer, Stefano Giannotti, and Matt Boman have generously allowed Cambofest to include their films on a “thank you DVD” for contributors sending $50 or more.

**We’ve still got a long way to go (our goal is about $3200 more by the end of May). Please send a contribution to help us maintain festival operations – Even $10 helps and goes a long way out here in Cambodia**

All supporters will be listed on the CAMBOFEST website’s sponsor page at www.cambofest.com; contributors sending $50 or more will receive a special “Best of CAMBOFEST 2008” DVD as our way of saying thanks.

1) PREFERRED METHOD=> your contribution will reach us more quickly and will be available to us nearly instantly via the following gateway:

CAMBOFEST’s aim has always been to promote the re-emergence of a viable media and movie industry in Cambodia, an LDC (lesser developed country). The media sector experienced near-total destruction during the country’s civil war and Khmer Rouge regime, and only today is the industry making inroads towards a recovery in this developing democracy.

If you’d like to discuss more significant, longterm sponsorship of CAMBOFEST, please email us at info@cambofest.com

Thanks for your support; we’ll update you on our situation at the end of May–
