16 Kickstarter-Funded Films Debut At SXSW

Since it’s inception 10 years ago, Kickstarter has become the crodfunding platform of choice for folks with big ideas and small wallets. Projects in over a dozen creative categories have gotten their start on the platform and film has been a big winner, with over a 150 funded films opening theatrically. There are 16 Kickstarter-funded films debuting at the SXSW Film Festival, which begins later this week. That’s five more than on last year’s debut list, indicating that indie filmmakers are turning to the platform (and seeing success) in increasing numbers. If you’re in Austin this week, check out these screenings to see what you think!
