Best of Crowdfunding:
the Glorious Campaign of "My Reincarnation"

Friday, 21 October 2011, 17:00 – 18:30
Polnisches Institut Leipzig

The remarkable kickstarter campaign for the documentary "My Reincarnation" by the US filmmaker Jennifer Fox is probably the most successful example for crowdfunding right now.


The idea was to rise US $50.000 for the international distribution of the film, but after intense months of campaigning Jennifer and her team ended up with incredible $150.000!


Is there a secret for a successful campaign? And what are the most important things to keep in mind before starting? How do you reach the crowd? And what's the best way to prepare  for a crowdfunding mission?

We invited one of the campaign managers to talk about how this outstanding campaign became so successful and to discuss the chances and challenges of crowdfunding in general.
