“Pay It Forward Ticketing aligns perfectly with my goals of increased accessibility and social impact. By enabling viewers to support each other through ticket purchases, I can amplify the impact of my documentary and ensure that it reaches communities in India who might not otherwise have the opportunity to see it. GATHR's commitment to transparency and community empowerment is exactly what independent filmmakers like us need to continue telling important stories."
