Kickstarter Announces Details About the 2015 Kickstarter Film Festival

It’s that time of the year again! On Tuesday, Kickstarter announced details for its fifth annual film festival that is set to kick off on October 15th.

The crowdfunding platform shared:

Kickstarter FIlm Festival 2015“Not just Brooklyn. Not just L.A. For the first time ever, we’re bringing the annual Kickstarter Film Festival to 32 theaters around the U.S.! It’s our biggest festival yet, and we can’t wait to show you another selection of amazing, independent films that were made with Kickstarter. It’s one night only, so clear October 15 on your calendar and head this way to RSVP at a theater near you. (It’s free!)

 

“To put together a great night at the movies, we combed through thousands of features, documentaries, and shorts funded on Kickstarter, and ended up choosing hits from Sundance, some groundbreaking animation, and one knockout documentary.”

The two-act program includes:

Screening at 7 PM (local time): 

Screening at 9:20 PM:

The Kickstarter team then added:

Kickstarter Film Festival 2015 5“We’re so excited about the film festival because it’s another way to highlight the incredible work being done by filmmakers using Kickstarter. We want that work to be seen by lots and lots of people — that’s why we’ve also worked with organizations like the New York Times,iTunes and the Sundance Institute to celebrate independent film.

 

“Two million people from around the world have pledged nearly $300 million in support of film projects. If you’re one of them, you’re partly responsible for this film fest! It’s because of your support that these films were made, that independent film is thriving on Kickstarter, and that creative stories like these are being seen and heard. So come see what you’ve helped make, and celebrate with us, on October 15th!”
