Kickstarter and The Eyeslicer to Host New “Radical Film Fair” in Brooklyn

This September, Kickstarter Film is partnering with The Eyeslicer, a secret TV show blending the boldest new American filmmaking into mind-expanding, mixtape-style episodes, to bring a new, free film fair to our Brooklyn headquarters.

Akin to the spirit of a comic or record fair, the Radical Film Fair will be a place for film lovers, independent filmmakers, distributors, publishers, zine-makers, and indie theaters to come together, meet fans, and sell their work.

Vendors including Oscilloscope Laboratories, Meow Wolf, Nitehawk Cinema, Kino Lorber and many others will be selling merch and communing with fellow film fans. Several more organizations will be participating in a pop-up Film Clinic, an on-site station where Creative Capital, POV, DCTV, and others will be offering free advice and mentorship.

Indie filmmakers will present short lightning-round talks throughout the day, including Penny Lane (Our Nixon, Nuts!, and Hail Satan) and Rashaad Ernesto Green (Premature and Gun Hill Road). The Eyeslicer’s Season Two will be playing in the theater, and there will be an immersive video installation of each episode in several different rooms.

We’re fortunate to have first-hand experience meeting hundreds of independent filmmakers and film lovers through our work at Kickstarter. It’s time to put that network to good use and connect them to each other! We hope that this experiment will serve as a repeatable proof of concept for a new way to sustain, celebrate, and support truly independent filmmaking as a community.
