About this project

UnPlanned Events Presents

Catalytic Communities: The American Festival Culture 

Catalytic Communities is a documentary series focusing on cultures, societies, &  communities that pioneer progressive ideas & lifestyles within their affiliates & the world around them.   The American Festival Culture is the first of these documentaries & will showcase a collection of festivals from across America.  Through an inside look behind the scenes of these productions & the people involved with them, we seek to expose our viewers to a world of optimism & outlandish creativity.  Festivals provide a safe-haven for their attendees to relax & enjoy good music, food, art, performance, conversation, & culture; but over the years festivals have received a bad rap as collections of “dirty hippies doing drugs.”  Many people will cringe at the thought of attending a festival because they have not been genuinely exposed to the caring communities that festivals generate.  There is an inherent hope & love present at festivals & it is our intention to expose the world to the innovative strength such hope & love can harbor.

We have decided the best way to truly capture this unique culture is to do all we can to produce this film in the same ways our subject matter - festivals - is created.  Through generating a good idea & seeking funding help from the very communities we hope to showcase.  We do not want to create a documentary that has one producer, but rather a documentary with a million producers.  It is our hope that the final film will be claimed as a personal project by thousands of people & enjoyed by countless more all across the globe.  So please, help us show the world that hope in a future of peace is not lost, it only waits to be sought out.

Here are some other projects our crew has been a part of:

“Sons of War”

“Ring Around The Rosie”

“Passion & Warfare”

"Alchemeyez Visionary Art Congress"

Quick Disclaimer: just so you understand what Kickstarter is:


1. Kickstarter is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: funds from fans for rewards from UP.


2. It's an All or Nothing funding mechanism: if we don't reach our financial goal, we do not get to keep any of the funds we raise. However, if we do reach our goal, we get to keep all the funds we raise, even if we go over our goal.
