*****10-10 Five Stars Reviews*** Highest rated festival in the Boise, Idaho area.*****
There is nothing like The Foster For Foster Film Festival! We are two teenagers, a sister/brother team, that got foster adopted. We are a 501c3 non profit. We just got done with our second Film Fest AT THE DRIVE-IN and it was a huge success with lots of press! **We make all the movies free to the public and just accept donations!**
All three local affiliates ,ABC, CBS, NBC coved our film festival. The two largest newspapers did as well. One of the TV stations went LIVE on opening night! Check out some of the news stories!!
We run this festival for one of our fundraisers to help us raise enough money to buy a 15 passenger van. With the van we can then take kids still in the foster system to fun events . **This means we don't personally make money! All the money goes towards all the fees (renting of the Drive-IN etc.) then what's left over goes to help foster Kids/families and aged out foster kids!
The pictures you see are from raising over 500 new backpacks and thousands of dollars worth of new and used clothes for foster kids.

THIS IS ROLLING ADMISSION SO IF WE LIKE A MOVIE WE ARE SELECTING IT NOW TO START PROMOTING YOUR FILM AND OUR FEST. BECAUSE WE DO IT THIS WAY WE WILL KEEP THE PRICE THE SAME EVERY MONTH!
We will show the movies in a real DRIVE-IN theatre. For Feature Films it would be awesome to have on DCP. If not we can take your links you email us.
For short movies we will need a downloadable link to put on Blue Rey.
We can't pay for screenings.
* One of the things we did besides social media is we went door to door to sell tickets to the event.
** We also went around town to hang flyers about the event.
*** Because this is a fundraiser we care about people attending.
Response from festival:
Thank you Mr. Douglas! We absolutely loved Portrait of a Woman at Dawn! No we are not Sundance..But, we are two teens that will hustle and grind to get people to watch amazing films like yours!! Were pretty positive that Sundance isn't putting fliers on windshields but we do!. :) And we loved every minute of it. haha We will never be one of the big guys but we do want to be the Biggest and Best Drive-In Festival in the World! Thanks again for the kind words.
Response from festival:
Thank you very much Miss Gardner! Those are really sweet words. I hope you do have a film to submit and we would love to meet you!
This isn't work to us because it's fun. Nerve wracking but fun to spread our message. We were blessed to get foster adopted and we wish that for everyone still in the system.
And to spread it by having cool films like yours is really fun!
