BBC news report on crowdfunding films

BBC news has an interesting, if quite brief, report on crowdfunding of low-budget indies from the Tribeca Film Festival, one I missed at the time in April. It’s certainly the case that crowdfunding is starting to have more impact and that films are appearing at festivals such as Tribeca, Sundance and SXSW that were financed wholly or partly in this way. Kickstarter in particular has started to gain a real presence at these events, having had 17 films at this year’s Sundance and as many as 33 at SXSW. And, yes, you guessed it, this is something I write about at some length in my upcoming book Indie 2.0.
