We are seeking funds to distribute this important, award-winning film that exposes some shocking truths about how the beloved Greenwich Village is vanishing before our eyes. This is not just happening in New York City, but in Main Street America and "villages" all around the world.   

 

 

The Lost Village focuses on New York City’s Greenwich Village, which was once the epicenter for arts and culture. Huge rent increases in the village have hastened the closing of Mom and Pop shops and cultural venues. St. Vincent’s hospital was forced to close only to be replaced by luxury condos. The unique landscape of the village being threatened by the expansion plans of one of the village’s most influential institutions- NYU. Located in the heart of the village, NYU not only has one of the highest tuitions in the country, but a high rate of student prostitution.

 

If we meet our initial funding goal of $2,500 we will be able self-release the film through community screenings, but we'd really like to aim for our stretch goal of $10,000. We'd be able to work with a distributor to release the film on internet platforms and further increase the awareness of the important issues that this film addresses.

 

The story of “the lost village” has been happening all across the United States. Unfortunately there are many more “lost villages” around the world. We need to take a stand. The time for action is now. The Lost Village is an eye-opening film that provides solutions in the form of grassroots activism.
