Emerging film producer Melissa Azizi is hoping members of the public will get behind her newest project, a short film called Shopping, which she describes as “a poetic journey of two women searching for love in an ever-changing world”.

Azizi’s last film project, The Distance Between, also dealt with GLBT themes and screened at film festivals around the world including this year’s Mardi Gras Film Festival.

Set in the aisle of a grocery store, Shopping is supported by Metro Screen, but Azizi needs to raise $6000 to start principal photography by the first week of June.

Tax-deductible donations can be made through the Australia Cultural Fund, operated by the Australia Business Arts Foundation.

Azizi said the film drew attention to the issues of “homosexuality, chance, fate and the fear that can regretfully prevent us from loving”.

“By making a donation, you get to support a film that will change the way Australians feel about homosexuality, plus you also get a tax-deductible receipt for your gift,” she said.

Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.
