Help Us Support Local Filmmaking!

UPDATE 5 Oct 2022: So pleased to hear that PENDATANG has hit its funding target and will be proceeding as planned!

We are looking forward to supporting the movie when it comes out.

(Note: Should the crowdfunding fail to meet its target, the funds raised through this promotional period will be set aside for the funding of future projects.)
