TwoThree Oscar nominations!
So happy to report this morning that
twothree (!) Kickstarter-funded films are nominated for Academy Awards this year!
Kings Point, a film about about six seniors living in a retirement community of 15,000 people and Inocente, the story of a 15-year-old homeless girl who refuses to give up her dream of becoming an artist, were both nominated in the Best Documentary Short Subject category. Congratulations to the filmmakers on this incredible achievement. We’re rooting for you!
Meanwhile, Buzkashi Boys, a narrative short short entirely on location in Afghanistan, is nominated for Short Film (Live Action). Congratulations to director Sam French and the whole crew!
P.P.S.: Will this be the year a Kickstarter-funded film wins an Oscar?! Fingers crossed.
Today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the eight films on the shortlist for Best Documentary Short at this year’s Oscars. Well, what do you know? Two Kickstarter films made the cut: Kings Point and Inocente. Congratulations to the filmmakers and crews behind these two films. We’re rooting for ya!
