Two Oscar nominations!
So happy to report this morning that two Kickstarter-funded films are nominated for Academy Awards this year!
Kings Point, a film about about six seniors living in a retirement community of 15,000 people and Inocente, the story of a 15-year-old homeless girl who refuses to give up her dream of becoming an artist, were both nominated in the Best Documentary Short Subject category. Congratulations to the filmmakers on this incredible achievement. We’re rooting for you!
P.S.: These are the fourth and fifth Kickstarter projects to be nominated for Oscars. Incident in New Baghdad, Sun Come Up, and The Barber of Birmingham were all nominated in the past.
P.P.S.: Will this be the year a crowd-funded film wins an Oscar?! Fingers crossed.
So this morning, two Kickstarter funded films were nominated for Oscars! EastSiders congratulates them and hopes that this is the start of a new generation of film and television production!
