Hi there! My name is Oliver Spalding and I recently completed my dissertation project - a short film called ‘All In’ - as part of my MA degree in Digital Film and Television Production. I’m launching this crowdfunding campaign in order to raise funds to submit the short film to as many film festivals as possible.
Submitting to film festivals can be very costly but, after all the hard work that has gone into the production of 'All In', we really want to spread the word and get the film seen as much as possible. With your help, we can enter festivals around the world so please donate what you can today.
‘All In’ tells the story of Ash, a middle-aged gambling addict who spends the night at a late-night poker game. The aim of the film is to raise awareness for gambling addiction, an issue I feel is sorely underrepresented in the media landscape. With your help, we can get the film seen by as many people as possible at film festivals around the world.
Watch a short scene from the film below:

Watch star, Tony Fadil, talk about the film and playing Ash in the video below:
We want to submit to as many film festivals as possible, including Cannes, Sundance, Raindance and London. The film explores themes that have been sorely under-explored in filmmaking and, for this reason, we believe there will be a lot of interest in screening this film at numerous festivals.
All of the funds raised will go solely towards entering the film into festivals. With the average price of a submission being approximately £25.00, we’re aiming to raise up to £2,500 to submit the film to 100 festivals around the world.
Any pledge of £5 or more will be rewarded with a direct link and password to watch the full film.
