Jodi Savitz, a New York filmmaker originally from Plantation, is raising money to complete a lesbian documentary, Girl On Girl.

From her news release:

After garnering over 12,000 fans on Facebook, Girl on Girl director, Jodi Savitz, is reaching out to the public for support. Beginning October 2nd, Savitz will launch a 35-day crowdfunding campaign on the popular fundraising site, Indiegogo, with the goal of raising $100,000 to fund the first phase of production. So far, Girl on Girl has proven its worth through its growing international fan base, and its sponsorship from New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and Curve Magazine.

Unlike any documentary film to date, Girl on Girl focuses its lens on the lives of feminine lesbians, and invites the audience to discover what life is like for women whose identity is incessantly trivialized and stigmatized, both outside of and within queer spaces. Girl on Girl challenges assumptions of what society imagines a lesbian to look like and, for the first time, addresses the issue of feminine lesbians feeling invisible even after coming out.

The independently produced film features such ‘celesbians’ as Lauren Bedford Russell (The Real L Word: season 3) and Huffington Post columnist and award-winning lesbian porn producer, Jincey Lumpkin (JuicyPinkBox.com), along with several other women from around the country, including New York, Florida, Utah, and North Carolina.

The campaign will go live on the morning of October 2nd. The goal is to spread the direct link to the Indiegogo campaign via social media outlets and blogs.
