CROWDFUNDING TO BUILD INDEPENDENCE

FREE Event • No Ticketing or RSVP Required • 90 min (Includes Q&A)

.
Seed&Spark is a crowdfunding and digital distribution platform that empowers independent filmmakers, closing the loop between filmmakers and audiences. We are thrilled to welcome Seed&Spark to Independent Film Festival Boston while they take part in the Techstars Boston Spring program. seedandspark.com

This seminar led by Seed&Spark founder Emily Best for film-related projects, provides attendees with the crowdfunding action plan most likely to create a lasting, flourishing, and direct relationship with your audience. Crowdfunding is becoming a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. However, many filmmakers miss the opportunity to turn their funding campaigns into audience-building opportunities that can last an entire career, and provide the groundwork for distribution that the filmmaker controls. (Fun Stat: Seminar attendees who have run Seed&Spark campaigns have a 100% success rate!)

Also, if you’re a documentary filmmaker entering the #UntoldStory Crowdfunding Rally, this is a must-attend event.

Emily Best

Emily Best is the Founder and CEO of Seed&Spark, a crowdfunding and distribution platform for film with the highest crowdfunding success rate in the business – 75%! Emily started Seed&Spark after experiencing the challenges, community and spirit of making feature film Like the Water. She has successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in crowdfunding and sourcing.

Emily was named one of the 2013 Indiewire Influencers who are asking the big questions about what the independent film industry is today, and what it will become. She is touring film and tech festivals around the world, from Sundance and SXSW V2V to Sheffield and Galway – to educate filmmakers and learn their best practices in connecting with audiences to build a sustainable career.
