How do you feel about lending a helping hand to a new lesbian film project in Canada? Nobody dies, it isn't about the struggles of coming out and it isn't a porno. Sounds great so far, right? Portrait of a Serial Monogamist tells the story of 40-something Elsie who breaks up with her long-term girlfriend for a younger woman. This is a genuine comedy about love and relationships.


Diane Flacks is an Emmy- and Dora-nominated writer/performer who will play the film's protagonist, Elsie, alongside Carolyn Taylor as her long-term girlfriend, Robyn. Portrait of a Serial Monogamist is directed by Christina Zeidler and tipped to be fresh and hilarious, in the style of mainstream classics such as Manhattan, Annie Hall and High Fidelity. The film is set in Toronto and will focus on its alternative queer community.


Its filmmakers have already produced a two-minute trailer which can be viewed here. This was made without any funding, but they are now asking people to contribute to help make the rest of the film, which was recognised by Toronto's as a project "worth taking note of".


So far, they have managed to raise $15,815, but are still a long way off their target of $60,000 at just over 25% of their goal.


If you want to make a donation, you can do so by visiting the project's IndieGoGo page where you most definitely won't miss the big, pink 'contribute now' button. There are only 11 days left until the funds are closed, so nip over there right now if Portrait sounds like a film you want to see! If you choose to, you will be viewed by the team as a partner of the film, and a few partner perks could come your way.
