POLITICAL FILM FUND
A Political Film Fund to be auspiced by local independent filmmakers'
organisation Open Channel was launched by the producers of TIME TO GO JOHN
and given a blessing by Robert Greenwald who was with us via iChat, at the
Australian International Documentary Conference in February.
90% of proceeds from the sale of TIME TO GO JOHN will go in to the PFF.
10% is being allocated for administration costs and any costs associated
with building the Fund.
TIME TO GO JOHN was conceived to canvass the many troubling issues which
arose during the Howard government's nine years in office prior to the 2004
election. All of the work was done pro bono except for the replication of
the DVD's. All box office income was waived as a sweetener for cinema
operators to entice them to take TIME TO GO JOHN unseen and at short notice.
Income from the sale of the DVD'S paid for the replication, the small
surplus is the seed money for the new Fund.
We will soon be providing details of how to donate to the Fund.
The first deadline for applications to The Political Film Fund will be
September 30, 2005. Guidelines will be available on the new website to be
developed for it, and here.
The controversial film Time To Go John - Australia’s answer to Fahrenheit 9/11 - has been screening to packed houses.
‘I thought it was brilliant,’ says Rochelle who lives in a marginal seat, ‘I thought it was very funny. I thought it was very sad, it was very informative. I think I experienced every emotion under the sun just watching it.’

Australians are responding to this no budget 90 minute compilation of short documentaries, animations and political satires that highlights issues Howard wants to bury in this election.
More then 400 ordinary Australians have also ordered DVDs of the film - from Townsville to Byron Bay and Double Bay to Broome and Darwin. And the orders keep coming in.
In the tradition of Don’s Party they will be getting together to see the film with their friends and neighbours - in their lounge rooms or garages - with their chardonnay, beer or cup of tea.
We the filmmakers strongly urge you to show this film to friends, family and work colleagues - especially those who voted Liberal last time.
