Welcome to Rising Star the Movie!

Success! 101% on Kickstarter!

You’re looking at a picture of Hartford, Connecticut, home of the Mark Twain House, the Connecticut Science Center … and hopefully the setting for the movie RISING STAR! This is the official fundraising site for RISING STAR, a feature film project in development by Rising Star Films, LLC.

Hartford, CT – New England's Rising Star

Our company is looking to raise money for the production, marketing and distribution of the movie RISING STAR. And to help us do that, we’ve gotten some unbelievable assistance from the Independent Feature Project, who has accepted the movie into their Fiscal Sponsorship Program. That means we don’t have to actually look for investors – we have to look for people who’d like to make tax-deductible contributions to the movie!

Now how does that work? It’s simple – if you’re interested in helping our movie, all you have to do is click the “donate” button on the left hand side of this page. (See it? It’s under the text “all donations are tax deductible.”) Then, you’ll be sent to a page where you can fill out your information, including credit card information. Hit submit, and voila! You’ve made a tax-deductible donation to help us make our movie, and IFP will send you a thank-you note in the mail, which will serve as your receipt for next year’s taxes.

We truly hope you decide to help us make our movie – and any amount will be a tremendous help. But if you’d like to know more about the project, please, browse our site. We have information about the story of the movie, as well as the economic benefits the film will give Connecticut, our cast and crew, and other projects we’ve all worked on.

So enjoy the site! And when you’re done, we hope you’ll make a donation to help us make our movie.
