Apply for the 2016 Indiegogo Fellowship with IFP!

Update 4/5/2016:

Congratulations to the winner of the Indiegogo Fellowship: Skye Von’s Falling Out Of Love! Instead of making yet another traditional music video, Falling Out Of Love is partaking in a revolution and creating a fantastic journey into VR, interactivity and role playing. Their story permits you to partake from the characters’ points of view, allowing you to fully immerse yourself and enable the story to become your own.

IFP International Film Week 2015

Since 2014, we’ve partnered with the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) to help support indie filmmakers and artists with the essential resources necessary for all stages of development and distribution. We’ve spoken at and attended events like IFP Independent Film Week, hosted educational workshops such as The Ins and Outs of Successful Crowdfunding and partnered with the organization for its Made in NY Media Center. Now, we’re working with the Made in NY Media Center by IFP once again to empower artists in bringing their dreams to life.
