MovieHatch.com, the company that breaks down barriers to Hollywood for creative artists, announces the addition of crowdfunding to its services for filmmakers, with a distinctive difference: access to Hollywood. This unique funding platform is designed to provide both an avenue for funding as well as an introduction to influential industry insiders.
Unlike other crowdfunding sites, MovieHatch offers an opportunity for projects to be personally introduced to over 50 key industry decision-makers. Participants receive funds, regardless of reaching goals, and projects raising $10,000 or more can “opt-in” to fan voting. The top three fan favorites each month are introduced to the MovieHatch judges/partners for collaboration consideration.
“What sets MovieHatch apart are the one-on-one relationships with companies like ours.” says Alex Young, VP of Development, Josephson Entertainment. “Not only can filmmakers get projects funded, but they can also get their projects in front of top industry professionals. You won’t get this opportunity with any other crowdfunding solution.”
Film-funding kicks off with select feature projects (link to videos) including:

Participants can submit projects for any form of film or video, including narrative film, documentary film, short film, web series, television, and music videos.
