In Hollywood, many great movies are made every single year that never quite reach a wide audience for a multitude of reasons. “Jenny’s Wedding” is one of those films that is quietly being produced under the radar at the moment, however; its compelling story and star-ladened cast gives the film great potential to become a hit and to make a difference for our community in the process!

The new independently made film by MM Productions, “Jenny’s Wedding” stars lead actress, Katherine Heigl, along with supporting actors, two-time Oscar nominee, Tom Wilkinson as well as Linda Emond, Grace Gummer and Alexis Bledel rounding out the cast. The film is about love in its most basic sense. The story it tells can resonate with most of us in one capacity or another. It’s about being open and honest to our families about who we are and who we love.

The premise of the film is reflected through its description of Jenny and her family: “Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl) has led an openly gay life – except with her conventional family. When she finally decides to start a family and marry the woman they thought was just her roommate, the small, safe world the Farrells inhabited changes forever. They are left with a simple and difficult choice – either change with it or drown.”

Katherine Heigl describes the film in her own words:

The film is currently in post-production, and its producers are planning on screening the film at different film festivals by the end of 2014. At that point, the producers hope they can pick up a big distributor for the film and it will generate a wide release in theatres across the country.

In the meantime however, production is lacking the funds necessary to license the type of music for the film’s soundtrack that will really boost its marketability and increase its chances of becoming a successful project. Music from notable artists can do wonders in making a film successful!

Surprisingly, despite an amazing cast of actors starring in this film, the project has been functioning off of a very small budget and that is why it is on Indiegogo asking for your help!

For your donation to their Indiegogo campaign, depending upon how much you give, they are offering some wonderful gifts, including an invitation to one of their film screenings and lots of other fun stuff!
