1. I think that Kickstarter is a storytelling platform and through your project video, through the rewards that you offer, through the way you write about the project, and the way you build and engage your audience, it’s all an opportunity to tell the story, not of the film itself, but really the making of that film, who you are as an artist, where you are in the process of making something, and really inviting people to be a part of it.

  2. A few Kickstarter-funded films currently in theaters, including a Sundance award-winner, a NY Times Critics’ Pick, and one with a 4 star review from the Guardian. A great weekend to hit the cinema!

    Snapshots from last night’s Kickstarter Film Festival in Brooklyn. We were way too busy grilling dogs to take any photos of our own, but here’s a few we found on Instagram. It was a beeeeautiful summer night, and thanks SO much to everyone who came out and to Kickstarter for hosting a kick-ass party.

    Love these photos from the 3rd annual Kickstarter Film Fest! Thanks to everyone who came! We can’t wait to do it again. In the meantime, if you’ve got photos, share them with us here
