Raising money is the most difficult task in filmmaking. Three filmmakers share strategies to help you meet fundraising goals for your next film! September 5: Heidi Saman (Namour) discusses how she used social media platforms to create audience engagement and successfully crowdfunded for her first feature film, Namour.  September 19: Ben Kalina (Shored Up) shares his experience raising funds through Kickstarter and Indiegogo for post-production on his documentaries Shored Up and HOME. September 26: Rea Tajiri (Wisdom Gone Wild) has successfully funded all her films through crowdsourcing, grants, and fellowships. She will discuss the elements that make up a successful documentary film funding proposal.
