Though SimsFilmFest is a site without peer in its niche and an important resource for many machinimators, it has always been a labor of love. The site has grown so much in the last few years but our small team has remained the same size. There’s just three of us! We want to continue to be able to devote our time to bringing you this content, to shine a light on this amazing but often overlooked art form. Many of you have asked how you can help or support the site, and now here’s your chance!

If you find value in SimsFilmFest, if you’ve ever joined the festival or been sucked into a time vortex of oohs and ahhs, please consider the following ways of supporting us.

 

Donate

Your donation today helps us do more tomorrow.

Your support helps SimsFilmFest share the very best in machinima with people around the world each season and keep its doors open on a daily basis through our two core programs: the Sims International Film Festival and Battle of the Bands.

Donations let us maintain, grow and improve SimsFilmFest over time, allowing us to add more features that benefit the machinima community as a whole. Please make a donation and help us do even more.

Thank you for your support.

Patreon is a system that enables fans to support and engage with the creators and communities they love. It’s a crowd-funding service kind of like Kickstarter, except instead of a one-time donation, you can support a project on an ongoing basis. For SimsFilmFest, that means you can help the site become sustainable, enable us to try new features and find ways to give back to the community.

The money will go directly toward server and hosting costs, initial cost for setting up the site, and if we get extra money, we’ll be able to add new features and do give-aways.

If you love what we’re doing and want to be a big part of SimsFilmFest’s future, help us by becoming a Patron! Every little bit helps.

The Sims International Film Festival was created in 2010 as a way to foster creativity in The Sims community through machinima, an art form that uses video game footage to make movies. Over the years, as new entries in The Sims franchise were released and new editing methods became available, we’ve seen a lot of changes, but one thing has remained constant: our commitment to showcasing the creativity of this community and inspiring new artists.
