Free and open to all!

Join us for this special workshop presented by Seed & Spark.

Crowdfunding to Build Independence

Crowdfunding to Build Independence is workshop designed to help you leverage the tools for great crowdfunding to build a direct relationship with your audience that will last your entire career.

The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding has become a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. But most filmmakers miss the opportunity to leverage the power of crowdfunding for one film into an audience-building opportunity that can last an entire career  and provide the groundwork for effective distribution. In order to leverage this opportunity, it requires a new way of coming to work, and thats what youll learn here.

Weve taught this class at over 100 film festivals, schools and organizations around the country, and gathered learning from the thousands of filmmakers weve met and hundreds of campaigns weve supported. Fun Fact: Filmmakers who have attended these classes have a Seed&Spark crowdfunding campaign success rate of 100%!
