And just yesterday, we launched Indiegogo’s first-ever equity film offering, through our funding portal First Democracy VC, called The Field Guide To Evil, which will be produced by Alamo Drafthouse CEO Tim League and Ant Timpson and the team over at Drafthouse Films. Yes, you too can now be a film investor! Of course, you don’t have to step out into the cold and snow to back an Indiegogo film. However, if you want to see one at Sundance and Slamdance this week, you just might have to brave freezing temperatures and snow showers in Park City, Utah. where the annual festivals are held.
