The panel focused on how to raise funds, create a social impact, engaging communities, and what this means for film funding and business-building in the future.
Jordie Montevecchi, co-director of Sandgrains was one of the filmmakers that was on the panel to speak about how to raise money and awareness from crowd/fans/audiences/friends. A discussion to find out why crowdfunding matters beyond film from those using it for music, other arts funding, activism and social impact. In three flash half-hour discussions we’ll survey the practical uses of crowdfunding and how arts funding, media and society are changing right now through the wisdom/madness of crowds.
