ABOUT THE PROJECT
Saving Chintu is a heartfelt story of an Indian-American gay couple that comes to India to adopt a child. This film beautifully ties multiple social issues like LGBTQ awareness and the adoption of HIV-positive children.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
We self-funded this project from research to script development to production. We are now looking for your help to successfully complete this project. The money we raise from this campaign will go towards editing, color grading, sound design and participation in film festivals as we aim to spread awareness to a bigger audience. A detailed breakup of the funds is given below.
As filmmakers, this is our attempt to make this world more aware and inclusive, and we hope you will support us by backing this campaign.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
