The launch of a crowdfunding campaign for a controversial film The Suicide Party and a new organization to bring together the film and business communities – The Film and Business Connection – will be held on September 11 in San Francisco. The film is about inequality and the loss of the middle class in America, as a once successful salesman about to lose his house and all he holds dear organizes a suicide party with the help of friends, leading a media frenzy and unexpected results.

Film and business people need a way to help them connect with one another - the Film and Business Connection enables them to do that..

The gala free event with over 200 attending is a dual celebration for the launch of a crowdfunding campaign for the Suicide Party and for the beginning of the Film and Business Connection – a new organization to bring together members of the film and business community to help filmmakers fund, produce, distribute, market, and promote their films. Within 3 days, tickets to the free event sold out, though special invitations are available to the press. The event is being held on Wednesday, September 11 at 6:30-9 p.m. For press tickets, sign up as a member of the press on the waiting list, and the organizers will release a ticket to you.

The event is described as a Cast, Crew, and Friends Party to Celebrate Changemakers’ Castro Theater Premieres and the Launch of the Indiegogo Campaign for The Suicide Party and the Formation of the Film and Business Connection.

The program features the cast, crew, and others assisting with the production of The Parking Lot, Dead No More (which won 2 awards), and The Suicide Party which all premiered at a San Francisco Film Festival organized by Scary Cow, a San Francisco film collective. The event also features introductions to two upcoming documentaries: Forgive Our Taxes and The Battle Against Internet Book Piracy, based on the book of the same name.

In addition, the event will include presentations on the Save Dave and Suicide Party Indiegogo campaign to raise money to produce the feature film, along with invitations to join the Film and Business Connection and attend its next film and networking event in October.
