Heading into its 15th year, the Oxford Film Festival (OFF) has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the final amount of money needed for the 2018 event, which runs Feb. 7-11.

The campaign launched December 1, and is open to all those willing and able to donate to the OFF.

There will be several levels of donations and incentives that provide a wide range of opportunities to become more involved with Oxford Film Festival. Donation categories range from $15 to $500, with perks to match at each level.

For a $15 birthday donation, you receive an Oxford Film Festival birthday card on the OFF Facebook wall, a special thank-you on the screen at the festival itself, and a thank-you on the OFF website. At the $30 level, donors receive the same perks in addition to 15 percent off any ticket or pass at the festival.

The $45 level grants the same perks as the $15 and $30 levels, plus 25 percent off any ticket or pass for the festival.

The perks get even better at the $75 level, at which you will receive a five-pack ticket to the Oxford Film Festival and can enjoy five free movies, along with a birthday e-card, screening thanks, and thanks on the OFF website.

At the $120 level, you will get 10 film tickets to use for yourself or to share for a fun night at the festival. A weekend pass comes with the $135 donation level, and at the $250 level you become a sponsor of the festival with a VIP pass and much more.

The $500 level tops the charts with excitement, as it provides 2 VIP passes, a 2018 festival shirt, a 25 percent discount for any ticketed festival events, as well as special thanks on the OFF site.

The full 2018 festival schedule and ticket purchases will go live online in January 2018, but the best way to currently support OFF is through the crowdfunding campaign, said OFF Executive Director Melanie Addington. Donations will help raise the final funds needed to make the festival possible.
