Glenn R. Towery the award winning screenplay writer of the “STARFUNK and the ASTRAL PIONEERS” has announced the kickoff of a crowdfunding event to raise much needed funds to produce the motion picture. The Kickstarter is tentatively scheduled to open on KICKSTARTER.com on MAY 15, 2021.

The screenplay for Starfunk and the Astral Pioneers has been the recipient of several screenwriting recognitions the most recent being named BEST SCI-FI Screenplay at the FESTIGIOUS Film Festival for April of 2020.

The succeful production of this feature film will mark the very first time a feature film produced on Funk Music was successfully made. A film that deals with the outer space mythology surrounding the music genre of Funk is important to the African American diaspora historically. “There have been feature films on almost every genre of American music but somehow Funk music has been left out of the motion picture production cycle. “I am so proud to be doing this film and more importantly that it is being produced by African Americans from which this genre of music was spawned.” says Towery.
