You’re Invited: Connect with Indiegogo at the Toronto International Film Festival



We’re excited to be on the ground for the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival! The Toronto International Film Festival, more affectionately known as TIFF, is an eleven day whirlwind of noteworthy premiers, exciting red carpets, and best of all, fantastic films, ranging from the dramatic to the comedic to the delightfully artistic.

From September 4 – September 14, TIFF will showcase over 300 films from more than 60 countries. We can’t wait to see great films produced by critically acclaimed and up-and-coming directors from all around the globe, and are thrilled to have the most crowded-funded films shown at TIFF 2014, including Songs She Wrote About People She Knows The Editor, Preggoland, The Wanted 18, and Cub.

With any film festival, the events can be just as entertaining as the films themselves, and we’re excited to be speaking at and hosting a few events of our own.

Here’s where you can find the Indiegogo Film Team at TIFF 2014:

What’s Up With All These Multimedia Corporations Investing In Content?!?!
