Film makes the cut.
$100 million pledged to independent film on Kickstarter since 2009. At least 86 films released in over 1,500 theaters. And a total of 8,567 successfully funded film and video projects. Clearly, filmmakers and audiences have created a home for new work on Kickstarter.
With Sundance 2013 just around the corner, we’re thrilled to note that this will mark the second year in a row that roughly 10% of the festival’s slate is comprised of Kickstarter-funded films. Congrats to all the filmmakers and backers! We’ll be rooting for ya.
