Through the crowdfunding initiative on the digital platform Milaap, the filmmaker is looking to raise a total of Rs 2,75,000, to cover the post-production and other costs. “We are looking to submit the documentary to various film festivals. Through this crowdfunding drive, I’ve noticed that a lot of LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual) people also making their contributions for the film, which is heart-warming. Each contribution will not only be helping independent filmmaking, but also in bringing out the stories of queer persons,” asserts Malini, admitting that it was not very common for a filmmaker to seek for funds through the audience. Pa Ranjith, with whom she had worked for his film Madras (2014), has also been promoting Malini’s crowdfunding campaign through social media.
