Announcing the 2014 Kickstarter Film Fest
Share this post
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been anxiously watching and waiting to learn the exact date and time you can head over to our fourth annual Kickstarter Film Festival. Who wouldn’t be excited to spend a great evening under the stars, eating food, listening to music, watching amazing film, and having an all-around blast?
Well, the wait’s over, and the 2014 Kickstarter Film Fest is nearly here. The festivities will kick off on July 18th, at 7:00 pm in Brooklyn, NY’s beautiful Fort Greene Park. And that’s just the beginning. This year we’ll also be bringing the fest to Los Angeles (September 12), London (TBA), and — wait for it — your house! That’s right, your house. The 2014 Kickstarter Film Fest will be free to watch online, so we encourage you to toss a blanket down in your backyard, hang a sheet on a clothesline, load a cooler up with some cold beverages, and enjoy the show with friends and family. (More details on that to come.)
This being our fourth time hosting the film fest, we decided to switch things up a bit, so early this year we announced an open call for submissions — for features, shorts, animations, documentaries, webisodes, music videos, or any other film work coming out of the Kickstarter community. We received 1,069 submissions, watched every single one of them, and didn’t even get in any fistfights over which were best. We’ve put together an incredible program for you, featuring everything from a love story about animated sheep to a documentary about Libyan rebels to — you knew this was coming — a star-studded zombie comedy.
That’s not all. In Brooklyn, we’ll also have live musical performances from the Asphalt Orchestra marching band and singer/songwriter/guitar-genius Kaki King. Plus treats — sweet, savory, and occasionally both — from friends like Brooklyn Soda Works, Butter and Scotch, La Sonrisa Empanadas, and the popcorn scientists at Pop Karma. Plus more! Including hundreds of your friends and neighbors who love film as much as you do.
Join us, will you? Friday, July 18th. 7:00 pm. Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn. Or L.A., or London, or your house — see you there.
