Crowdfunding Rally

September 30, 2017 @ 6:15 PM - 6:45 PM

The Hell’s Half Mile Film & Music Festival, along with partners Seed&Spark and the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office, is excited to present our 3rd annual Crowdfunding Rally, this year focusing specifically on DOCUMENTARY FILM.  The Crowdfunding Rally creates the opportunity for filmmakers to capitalize on the excitement of film festivals by helping them convert festival-going fans into film-contributors. It’s designed for documentary filmmakers who are ready to start crowdfunding their next project, or who are looking for a fresh approach to supplement their current funding efforts.

Held during the Festival Happy Hour
OPEN TO PASSHOLDERS, including All Access, Guest, Sponsor and Media

The Crowdfunding Rally is a two-part event that begins and ends online, but makes a pit stop with a live pitch event at the 12th annual Hell’s Half Mile Film & Music Festival. Selected projects set up a campaign on Seed&Spark as well as pitch live in front of our Festival Happy Hour audience on Saturday, September 30th. Seed&Spark’s online crowdfunding platform is used to collect all the contributions from our audience, as well as from the presenter’s network of friends and family throughout their month-long online campaign.

Seed&Spark and Hell’s Half Mile will provide $1000 total to successful campaigns. Plus, if the campaigns reach 1,000 followers, and/or contributors, they’ll receive the Seed&Spark Filmmaker Giftbox, valued at $8,000 in products and services, and distribution on Seed & Spark. In addition, Hell’s Half Mile will screen their documentaries in our film series and split the box office revenue 50/50!
