We just had an amazingly successful festival.
Please support us to make sure that we can continue to bring great content to you.
Any filmmaker with an internet connection was able to attend attend and now anyone can see these great panels at their leisure.
Support our campaign to bring you another great festival in 2013 and continue supporting independent filmmaking and community building.
What is it?
The Unofficial Google+ Film Festival (UGPFF) is transforming the film festival world by bringing the experience to a world wide audience accross the web. With the use of Google+ Hangouts, the festival is made up of interactive filmmaking advice panels, Q&A's with filmmakers, an interactive marketplace, community gatherings and, of course, the streaming of fantastic short films from around the world.
People from around the world gather at festivals every year to be a part of the magic. Help us bring this inspirational experience to the livingrooms of the filmmaking community by supporting our campaign.
The Festival began with filmmaking panels on Friday Nov 30 and continues through Saturday Dec 1 with the screening of selected short films. RSVP here.
What We Need & What You Get
Festival creator and filmmaker Adam J. Cohen started this project last year out of his garage in Asheville, NC. This year the festival has added panel discussions, prizes, and two screening locations (Asheville and Los Angeles).
We built this campaign to support Adam's tireless efforts to make this festival a reality. Funds will contribute to his travel expenses from North Carolina to Los Angeles, lodging in LA and partial re-imbursement towards the resources required to run the festival.
In return we invite you to participate in the festival by tuning in on Google+ or YouTube or by joining us at one of the two screening locations.
Support official web series festival selection "Generic Girl" and the independent filmmakers Steven Wasserman and Victor Solis who created this live action comic show. 10 episodes following the adventures of a comic geek girl who battles villainy, bureaucrats, and one mysterious machine! 2013 IAWTV Award nominee: Best Director, Comedy for Steven Wasserman.
Check out the other films available on the right -- your pledges support the visibility of the festival and these hard-working filmmakers.
Thanks to your contributions all fees were waived for the first 100 submissions and attendance to the festival will be free to all who join.
In short, you will help create a world wide community for filmmakers to share their art, share their passions and inspire all who join.
By supporting this campaign, you are allowing Adam to continue to create an amazing event for all of us to enjoy.
