IFP & Made in NY Media Center Announce Partnership with Indiegogo

We are thrilled to announce the newly forged partnership between global crowdfunding platform, Indiegogo, The Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) and the Made in NY Media Center by IFP!

Indiegogo, an advocate of independent cinema since its conception at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008, will be offering IFP and Media Center members crowdfunding counseling and one-on-one support, as well as an incredible 25% discount on Indiegogo campaign fees. IFP member projects are also showcased on our Partner page: https://www.indiegogo.com/partners/ifp

Additionally, the partnership will establish the Indiegogo Fellowship giving a six-month Incubator membership at the Media Center to an emerging company working at the intersection of story and technology.

Indiegogo Fellowship at the Media Center
Granting one individual, small business project or start-up – who best blends storytelling and technology – a complimentary six-month Incubator Level membership at the Center.

Benefits of the Media Center Incubator include full-time desk space, mentorship, access to industry networks, teaching opportunities, as well as access to conference rooms, a screening room, and venue rentals.

We are looking for compelling ideas at the intersection of storytelling and technology that are helmed by creatives looking to collaborate with others and to take advantage of all the Media Center has to offer, including the potential to work and collaborate with others working in different disciplines. The recipient of the inaugural fellowship must be an individual that has had, or currently has, a campaign on Indiegogo.

The Indiegogo Fellow will be chosen by IFP among applicants and will be awarded based on the overall strength of the applicant’s project and the project’s core principals.

Interested applicants should apply at https://www.nymediacenter.com/membership-incubator.cfm, including all project and personnel information, as well as Fellowship code, “INDIEGOGO.” Please include a link to your Indiegogo campaign in the “What is Your Story” section of the application.

The deadline for applications is 11:50pm ET on Monday, June 16. All applicants will be notified of their selection status by Friday, June 27.
