This is the story of Sunfire, a Western Folk band from the Netherlands trying to break into the music industry in spite of the obstacles in their path.

Sunfire is more than a band, it´s a family. In the documentary we explore the ways in which the intimate relationships between the bandmates help them grow and succeed, but also how this can cause challenges.

In this documentary we dive deep into their world, experiencing what it takes to be an artist in today's society. You will get to see and understand their passion, their craft and what keeps them going.
But to bring this story to life, we have to be realistic! To create this film requires filming equipment, travel costs, specialists such as colour graders and sound engineers...But also, many other logistical aspects that will help us to present it on the big screen at film festivals and our own premiere in February.
Sunfire is growing exponentially in the music industry and winning the hearts of festival bookers, the press and most importantly the audience.
This is their moment, this is them going up the rollercoster before the big loop, and this is why we feel the need and urgency to documment this process now.
We want YOU to be a part of this story, to live this singular moment with the band, and with us, the filmmakers. To see them become bigger and bigger... And to dive into the world of a group of musicians that, with all their passion and hope, share one common goal: To be heard.
Please donate to make Sunfire´s story come to life!
We have an Exclusive Premiere on January 31st at Filmhuis in Den Haag. We would love to see you there!
