Staying true to our crowdfunding roots in indie film, Indiegogo recently launched a partnership with Raindance Film Festival and Schools — to foster independent filmmakers as well as to amplify and enhance Raindance’s work. Since 1992, Raindance has organized a cutting-edge festival in London and offered filmmaking classes in major cities around the world. This isn’t their first time being mentioned in the same sentence as Indiegogo — you might remember when they funded their first, original feature on Indiegogo earlier this year.

We wanted to kick-off our partnership with Raindance in a big way, so we decided to do so at another big gathering place for the independent film community: The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). This year, we’ll be at Raindance Toronto’s TIFF Industry Party where shoptalk and liquid inspiration are sure to be free-flowing. Indiegogo’s Chief Film Geek (and author of Crowdfunding for Filmmakers: The Way to a Successful Film Campaign), John T. Trigonis, will be on hand, doling out crowdfunding know-how and hosting a Pitch Video Contest.

Whether or not you’ve run a crowdfunding campaign before, you know that the art of getting a film made all starts with your pitch. Put your pitching skills to the test by telling us about the film project you’d like to make — for a chance to win $2,000 gogobucks to get your crowdfunding campaign off the ground! Find out more and enter to win here!

If you live in Toronto or will be in town for TIFF, Indiegogo and Raindance hope to see you at:
