First Annual Kickstarter Film Festival!

On Friday, July 9th, Kickstarter and Rooftop Films are hosting the first annual Kickstarter Film Festival on the roof of the OId American Can Factory in Brooklyn.

Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors, and in the last year hundreds of filmmakers, musicians, artists and organizations have made use of their unique services to get their projects started and finished. Based around the idea that a good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide, Kickstarter is spearheading a revolution in creative fundraising, helping artists build their own supportive communities. On this evening we will celebrate many of the exciting new projects that are being produced with support generated through

The festival will feature 90 minutes of film and video from a dozen Kickstarter projects, including feature films, stop-motion animation, documentaries, art, and dance. All of them amazing.

There’s much more than film, though. We’re lucky enough to have a handful of Kickstarter food projects serving as vendors for the event. They’ll be selling things like artisanal sodas, homemade ice cream, amazing pies, fresh vegetables from urban farms, delicious cakes, and more. It’s going to be delicious.

There will also be music! Before the screening enjoy the amazing Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band, the focus of the Kickstarter-funded Brasslands documentary. Watch the project video for more.
