In keeping with its mission to honor the people, places and moments that made New Hope one of the most vibrant LGBTQ communities in America, New Hope Celebrates History has announced a campaign to raise $10,000 to complete the funding for a new documentary film with a working title, “Nowhere but HERE.”
“’Nowhere but HERE’” chronicles the lives, loves, parties, artists, authors, entrepreneurs, entertainers and community activists who made New Hope their home,” said Daniel Brooks, Director of New Hope Celebrates History and founder of New Hope Celebrates. “It’s also important that we preserve and celebrate how the New Hope community embraced lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer individuals. It happened nowhere but here, which is why this film has to be made.”
The film, written and directed by local filmmaker Sara Scully and local award-winning videographer Bob Krist, will include lively interviews, dazzling digitalized artifacts and articles, fun club clips and priceless photos spanning over 50 years.
According to Brooks, much of the film production to date has been funded through donations, but the producers are $10,000 shy of their pre-production goal. “We hope to get at least seven donations of $1,000 or more. Those donors will be called The Magnificent Seven and be credited as a producer.”
To make any contribution, send a check payable to New Hope Celebrates at NHCH Film, PO Box 266, New Hope, PA 18938. To make an online donation visit www.newhopecelebrateshistory.org.
