Crowdfunding sites for Movies

14 days left for Gosnell film crowdfunding

The following comes from an Apr. 27 item on the site Heritage.org.

Kickstarter’s reach and reputation have made it “the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects” — and a desirable destination for two movies about abortion.

and both sought to use the crowdfunding website. First, they encountered resistance, then rejection from Kickstarter. Both projects are now raising money on rival Indiegogo.

Phelim McAleer, producer of Gosnell, said Kickstarter has advantages as the industry leader in crowdfunded projects. Since its 2009 launch, the Kickstarter community haspledged more than $1 billion. In that time, 143, 766 projects have launched on the site; 60, 572 have been successfully funded.

Gosnell is a movie about Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist who was found guilty of murder last year and is suspected in the deaths of thousands of babies. Gosnell has raised $1.4 million with 15 days left to meet its $2.1 million goal.

McAleer said Kickstarter representatives told him the film’s description couldn’t include Gosnell’s crimes because it violated community guidelines — even though Gosnell’s actions are the exact reason for making the movie.

Jason Vaughn, director of Stolen Moments, said his film will “display a series of vignettes illustrating numerous small moments in the lives of people and how those have been taken away via the termination of pregnancy.”

Kickstarter initially cited this reason for rejecting the project: “Unfortunately, this program does not meet our guidelines. Projects on Kickstarter cannot offer self-help. This isn’t a judgment on the quality of the project, just a reflection of our focus.”
