Whether your film is in need of funds, fans, or both, this presentation will cover all the basics of running a successful and meaningful Kickstarter campaign, shedding light on how to not only reach your funding goal, but — just as important! — use Kickstarter as a space to grow and connect with your audience. If you're unfamiliar with the platform, or you've already run one campaign and are looking for tips to launch another, Kickstarer's Film Program Director Elisabeth Holm will share her thoughts in a presentation of best practices and case studies, followed by a Q&A. Please come ready with ideas and questions, and you should leave ready (and excited!) to start your project!

PANELISTS:
Elisabeth Holm (Kickstarter's Film Program Director)
Michael Gottwald (documentary producer) raised $56,000 on Kickstarter for the latest Ross Brothers documentary "Tchoupitoulas" which had its world premiere at SXSW this year:
