We are proud to work with a group of non-profit organizations who share our commitment to providing artists with more opportunities to share their work.
Through #ArtistServices, Sundance Institute became the first curatorial partner of the creative funding platform Kickstarter. Since launching the deal in 2011, with promotional support from Kickstarter and dedicated strategic consultation from the #ArtistServices staff, 200+ filmmakers have successfully completed fundraising campaigns. #ArtistServices has hosted several Kickstarter Schools—sessions devoted to explaining their service and best practices—in Park City, New York and Los Angeles.
#ArtistServices provides its filmmakers with efficient and effective promotional and marketing support. Through relationships with leading platforms such as Assemble, Instagram, Squarespace, Facebook, Twitter, GoWatchIt, Blurb and BitTorrent we provide best practices for alumni, and curate their work with Sundance Institute support.
The Sundance Institute #ArtistServices program is supported by Cinereach, Kickstarter, National Endowment for the Arts, Vimeo, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Arcus Foundation, Quiver Digital, and Hootsuite.
O’Melveny & Myers generously provided pro bono legal services for the program.
