Crowdfunding No Longer the Exception

Crowdfunding independent films is now almost expected.

Look at the stats: 10% of this year’s Sundance selections and 16.5% of the upcoming South By Southwest film selections were crowdfunded, mostly on Kickstarter.

That site said that 17 films raised over $1.5M from more than 20,000 donors.

The SXSW Festival in Austin will have 2 programs on crowd funding, including one on funding potato salad. http://schedule.sxsw.com/2015/events/event_FP36578 and http://schedule.sxsw.com/2015/events/event_IAP38807
