These Kickstarter-Funded Films Are Headed to the 2019 Sundance Film Festival

For the eighth year, Kickstarter creators will bring their documentaries, narrative features, shorts, and series to Park City.

This year, we’re thrilled to share that nine Kickstarter-funded projects will be making their way to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah (January 24—Feb 3, 2019), joining the 123 Kickstarter-funded documentaries, features, shorts, and series that have been invited to screen at the fest since 2011.

From Jimmie Fails and Joe Talbot’s The Last Black Man in San Francisco to Knock Down the House, a documentary following the campaigns of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other women running for U.S. Congress in the 2018 midterm elections, this year’s selected films push forward new narratives, showcase emerging talent, and enhance the way we tell stories on-screen.

Kickstarter’s Film team will also be at Sundance this January, hosting events, panels, and parties at the Kickstarter Lodge and cheering on creators at their films’ world premieres. (Follow @Kickstarter on Instagram for live updates from the mountain.)

“So many of these films began as projects on Kickstarter years ago,” says Kickstarter’s Director of Documentary Film Liz Cook. “It’s a true testament to the time, grit, patience, and care these filmmakers bring to the stories they tell.”

What $4 Billion Pledged to Creative Projects Looks Like

Last week, the Kickstarter campaign for Street Masters: Aftershock received a pledge of $209. For the creator, the independent game studio Blacklist Games, that represented another step toward bringing their board game expansion to life. For Kickstarter as a whole, it represented a thrilling milestone: $4 billion pledged to creative ideas on our platform.

Over 154,000 projects have been funded on Kickstarter with the support of over 15 million backers, more than 5 million of whom have supported more than one project. That’s 15 million people who have helped over 123,000 creators make hip-hop anthologies, DIY microscopes, animated documentaries, intersectional feminist zines, kinetic artworks, card games featuring combustible cats, and so much more.

Make 100 with Kickstarter in 2019

You’re invited to launch a limited-edition project in January as part of Make 100.

In January 2017, over 470 creators launched projects as part of Kickstarter’s first year of Make 100, a creative initiative focused on limited editions of 100. Since then, we’ve seen creators take the idea in directions we never expected.

To kick off 2019, we invite you to join the Kickstarter community and launch a Make 100 project of your own. Whether you’re a curious first-timer or an experienced creator, there’s no time like a new year to take a creative risk, explore a new direction, and make good on your creative ambitions.

Announcing Zine Quest, a Tribute to RPG Zines in February 2019

This winter, let us summon the ancient forms and blazon our sigils on portentous parchments!

Emerging in the early 1970s, RPG zines were hugely influential in the early days of role-playing game fandom and publishing. Inspired by classic titles like Judges Guild and Alarums & Excursions, Kickstarter is inviting creators to launch their own RPG-inspired zine projects in February 2019 as part of Zine Quest, a celebration of these influential documents.

A New Approach to Our Work on Drip

A year ago we launched Drip, a tool for people to fund their creative work on an ongoing basis. We saw this as another way to fulfill our mission — to help creative projects come to life — outside of the project-based funding we’ve pioneered with Kickstarter, and creator resources like The Creative Independent.

Since its launch, Drip has operated as an invitation-only service with about 100 creators. Recently we began talking with our friends at XOXO, Andy Baio and Andy McMillan, about the best future for Drip, and the best way to support creators and creative work through such a tool. These discussions opened up a new direction that we want to share today.

A New Project With XOXO

We are partnering with XOXO on a new project that will ultimately replace Drip, one in which Kickstarter will be taking more of a supporting role. The project, which will build on the work of the Drip team, will help independent artists and creators get discovered, find a community to support their work, and build a long-term, sustainable career.
