Join us Thursday at 6pm for our latest LFS Mixer! We’ll be gathering on the second floor of the newly renovated Decca restaurant.

Price: Free for members and veterans, $10 cover for non-members (fee will be waived for those who sign up for 2022 membership at the door).
OUR FEATURED GUEST
JUSTIN GIDDINGS is an award-winning actor and filmmaker who found creative freedom in crowdfunding, via TheKickstarterGuy.com. To date, he has coached over 180 filmmakers, raised $7 million, and has a success rate of 98%.
As our film community excitedly awaits the new Kentucky production incentive in early 2022, local filmmakers – and those who back them – are also wondering how they can best utilize the new rules for their own projects. And one key aspect of that concerns raising money.
Independent filmmakers have long relied on multiple sources of production funds, including but not limited to private equity, soft money, crowdfunding, and fiscal sponsorship. In addition to Giddings’s insights on crowdfunding (including a look at the burgeoning equity space), LFS Board Chair and producer Stu Pollard will share some brief thoughts on how the new incentive can be leveraged to assist filmmakers on the fundraising trail. They will also discuss how the Louisville Film Society’s fiscal sponsorship program can benefit both filmmakers and potential investors/donors.Read More >>
