Kickstarter is a fantastic new website that helps fund and follow creativity. Hundreds of artists, including many filmmakers whose work has appeared at Rooftop, are raising vital funds through this collaborative medium. Recent successes include Wicked Delicate’s Truck Farm and Dustin Guy Defa’s Bad Fever.

Kickstarter works much like Rooftop’s own Filmmakers’ Fund, which uses small amounts of money from our large community to create new projects, and on July 9, Rooftop will be hosting a special event with Kickstarter.

If you are a Rooftop alum or friend, let us know about your project and we’ll do our best to post it here, helping you raise funds. Send an email to kickstarter at rooftopfilms dot com.

If you’re a fan of independent film and art, and want to do a tiny but crucial part to see new projects get made, visit our blog often, follow Rooftop on Twitter and Facebook, and click on the Kickstarter link under “For Filmmakers.”
