Kickstarter funded movies to get their own section in iTunes
Popular crowd funding website Kickstarter has made a deal with Apple in which all movies and documentaries funded on the website (which since its launch has passed the $1 Billion in pledges mark) to get included into iTunes, the company lets know on its official blog.
The new category called “Kickstarter Collection” already features tons of movies that were previously successfully funded on the website among them are Veronica Mars, Gimme the Loot, Indie Game: The Movie, Putty Hill, Trash Dance, and Buzkashi Boys. Of which Inocente even won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short last year and seven have been nominated for Academy Awards
This is also a great opportunity for people looking to fund a future project as choosing Kickstarter now increases the chance to get your movie or documentary featured on iTunes, any future movie that is funded successfully has a chance to get included into the “Kickstart Collection” room.
