Kickstarter, the world's largest fundraising space for creative projects, is now providing a platform for features, shorts and docs at the Kickstarter Film Festival in London on Saturday 18th October. The London event at Prince Charles Cinema follows it success in New York and LA earlier this year. Since its launch in 2009, Kickstarter has become a serious alternative funding method for the film industry: 40,000 film projects have received over $230 million in pledges, making it the largest category. Certain projects are gaining mainstream critical acclaim too, with three Kickstarter-funded projects receiving Oscar nominations at last year's event. Check here for more details.
