This panel will focus on ways that filmmakers can use new and unique web-based tools along with traditional philanthropic incentives to bring in non-traditional funding. Crowdfunding, combined with fiscal sponsorship, is a powerful and effective way to use online social networks to cultivate new donors. The panel will focus on how to successfully use crowdfunding in conjunction with fiscal sponsorship. The panelists will bring their own experiences to contextualize how crowdfunding can amp up a film's fundraising campaign in a short time frame. Find out how you can make crowdfunding work for you, including ways to create an amazing pitch clip, offer perks that work, frame your fundraising campaigns so your donors become your audience and remain connected, plus more. We’ll bring together professionals from the front lines of crowdfunding, fiscal sponsorship, and successful crowdfunded projects who can help you navigate the cutting edge of funding.
