Damn Right I'm a Cowboy is an Australian feature-length documentary about local music. It was a foot-stomping riot at the Adelaide Film Festival. Made with no grants or funding, it received 'facilitity support' (but again, no money) from the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC), and screened three times to great reviews.
Now it's been invited to be part of the Down Under Berlin Film Festival in September this year! Down Under Berlin, held annually at Moviemento, the oldest cinema in Germany, is the largest showcase of Australian films in Europe.
The bad news? The ABC paid music copyright for their screenings only, so some tracks in Damn Right I'm a Cowboy need clearance before anyone else can see the film. That costs anywhere from $200 to $2000 per track used.

Can you help send this bundle of joy to Berlin? Thanks for reading. May the horse be with you!
Now here's a couple of tracks from the show.
