The Program

On October 15th, 32 theaters across the country screened our biggest festival yet. The program was put together after combing through thousands of the features, documentaries, and shorts funded on Kickstarter and the final lineup included hits from Sundance, groundbreaking animation, and one knockout documentary. We hope everyone in attendance enjoyed the show!

Kickstarter + Film

Kickstarter + Film

Two million people from around the world have pledged nearly $300 million in support of independent filmmakers on Kickstarter. Over the past five years, this community has supported seven Academy Award nominees (including one Oscar for Inocente!), reliably funded more than 10% of the Sundance Film Festival slate, and helped bring thousands of other features, shorts, and documentaries to life.
