Cypriot filmmaker launches crowd-funding drive

As in Greece before it, when Cyprus began to feel the pinch of the economic crisis, funding for the arts was one of the first areas to take a hit.

One Cypriot filmmaker, Stelana Kliris, has taken to the funding plaform indiegogo.com to present and seek support for a low-budget project in an effort to create some work for herself and her associates and to provide a small boost to the flagging industry during these difficult times.

Kliris’s “Committed” will be a romcom road movie set on the Eastern Mediterranean island, where a man escaping the pressure of having to propose to his girlfriend comes across a bride who has just run out on her wedding.

With Cyprus being one of the cheapest shooting destinations in Europe, the plan is to shoot the film over three weeks in May 2013, with the support of a local crew and production companies.
