Kickstarter supported films

Yancey Strickler, one of the founders of Kickstarter, made the rounds at the party, slapping filmmakers on the back and entertaining questions from journalists about some of the company’s films.

Funny thing about that. Kickstarter didn’t greenlight the movies; the people did.

Kickstarter, a three-year-old Web site that hosts crowd-sourced fundraising for creative projects, has become a significant and now very visible player in independent film, in part because cinematic hopefuls are able to take their case right to the people.
