Fund This!: PreDestined

Award-winning screenwriter and first-time director, Tye Green, sets out to raise funds for her lesbian drama.


Published:

Tye Green has certainly made a name for herself in the lesbian film community. Not only has the Midwest native won two awards as a screenwriter for her films PreDestined and 12 Disciples, she’s also the executive producer and writer for the webseries TH3M!. Now, Green has set the bar even higher with her directorial debut for PreDestined and she needs help to get the project on its feet.

PreDestined is about the relationship between Kay (played by Chante Linwood) and Nadia. The pair fall in love in the face of adversity, where Kay must come to terms with her sexual identity, race, class and religion. According to the film’s synopsis, “It is successful in breaking down the stigmatizations that exist in our society by highlighting the universal issues of finding and maintaining love in an era that tends to place emphasis on differences.”

While raising awareness and funding for any film, let alone a lesbian film, seems like a daunting task, any and all contributions to this project have the power to create impact. With the help of IndieGoGo (a website similar to Kickstarter) a platform for raising money and exposure for creative endeavors of all kind, PreDestined has a big goal to reach.

Check out the trailer below and then head over to IndieGoGo to make this project a reality.
