PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS: CROWDFUNDING 2.0

Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and RocketHub have been popular in recent years, connecting filmmakers with individuals willing to donate to projects for honorary credits or other incentives. With the passage of Obama‚Äôs JOBS Act, the door has been opened to expand crowdfunding to investors, not just donors. This panel, moderated by attorney Dan Satorius and includes attorney Susan H. Bodine (Partner at Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard LLP) and Brian Meece (RocketHub), addresses what impact the anticipated new SEC rules on this form of crowdfunding might have for independent filmmakers.
