In support of Martin Scorsese’s non-profit Film Foundation, Anderson is currently hosting an online raffle which offers a grand prize including a tour of the 'Isle Of Dogs' set and getting to record the 'voice' of a dog in the film. Click here to enter.
"Proceeds from Wes’s raffle will go to the Film Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Martin Scorsese dedicated to protecting and preserving motion picture history. By working in partnership with archives and studios, the foundation has helped to restore nearly 700 films, which are made accessible to the public through programming at festivals, museums, and educational institutions around the world. The Film Foundation's World Cinema Project has restored 25 films from 19 different countries representing the rich diversity of world cinema. The foundation's free educational curriculum, The Story of Movies, teaches young people - over 10 million to date - about film language and history."
