We’ve got some big news! In July, MST3K launched a fundraiser to help MIGIZI, a Minneapolis-based community organization for indigenous youth, to rebuild their damaged facility. On May 29th, MIGIZI's newly constructed building was caught in neighboring fires from the protesting taking place a block over from the 3rd Precinct.
As an incentive, during the MST3K panel for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Joel set a fundraising goal of $20,000 and asked fellow former cast members J. Elvis Weinstein and Bill Corbett to reprise their roles as Tom Servo and Crow to riff two brand-new shorts. They agreed, and surprising no one, the initial fundraising goal was met within hours. These shorts are currently being produced, and will be premiered in a private online screening with everyone who donated to the fundraiser. The fundraiser is still going, by the way, so it’s not too late to get in! The shorts will be finished later this fall.
If you’d like more details about the fundraiser, and the titles of the short films being riffed, head over to our new official fan community site at MST3K.org. This new site is a work in progress, but we’ve got some exciting things planned for it.
Thanks for your continued support!
