Producers of the lesbian romantic comedy Portrait of a Serial Monogamist are looking for backers to help fund their project.

The film is being pitched by writers/directors Christina Zeidler and John Mitchell on the funding site Indiegogo.com.

Zeidler and Mitchell released a trailer for their upcoming film earlier this month.

The film centers on Elsie Neufeld (played by Diane Flacks), a 40-something lesbian living and working in Toronto. Elsie is described as charming and successful but a "complete mess" when it comes to romance. The television producer breaks up with her longtime girlfriend Robyn (Carolyn Taylor) to pursue another woman who, it turns out, might not be interested in a relationship.

Producers are looking to raise $60,000 in the next 30 days to complete the film, $10,000 of which has already been pledged. A $200 "Goin' Steady" contribution includes an invitation to the movie's set to watch it being filmed.

Toronto's blogTO.com recently included the film in a list of Indiegogo.com projects "worth taking note of."
