Crowdfunding to Build Independence: A Workshop with Seed&Spark
June 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm| $12
Seed&Spark’s Christina Raia will teach you how to be a truly independent filmmaker!
Seed&Spark is the world’s only streaming and crowdfunding destination, supporting inclusive films and film-related projects with funding, audience building, and distribution. A dedication to connecting filmmakers and audiences is the heart of their popular crowdfunding workshop, so we are thrilled that Seed&Spark has joined with Art of Brooklyn Film Festival this year to bring it to our network.
Patrons and fans supporting the creation of new works is an old practice, but the emergence of crowdfunding platforms in the early 2000s changed the landscape completely for film and media makers. Now an accepted— and increasingly indispensable— element in the creation of new media at all levels, understanding and mastering crowdfunding is an important new skill in the 21st century. Identifying, and then enthusiastically engaging supporters is essential to successfully funding and distributing independent films. This workshop will teach you how to find and engage your fans, run an effective crowdfunding campaign, and then distribute your film— all while preparing you to make your next film. So this workshop isn’t just about crowdfunding: it’s about career building.
