The criteria for a firstPix crowd funded project are as follows:
- Must be the first or second feature* project of the director(s)
- The projected budget cannot exceed $250,000.00
- The DV/film should have a positive humanitarian message
nextPix will review your crowd funding proposal for selection based in part on the criteria that the project have a positive humanitarian message (for more on our definition of "humanitarian" see Humanistic Media). We welcome narrative feature/documentaries and animation projects of all subject matter.
nextPix will offer funding of up to 5K through the crowd funding campaign of the filmmaker's choice. nextPix will also publicize the selected project(s) through its own website and may assist filmmakers in promoting their project. We anticipate assisting between 1-3 projects a year.
If you'd like to apply for the firstPix crowd funding assistance, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line put 'Crowd funding Request for [Title of film]' and provide a link to your crowd funding webpage. Also please describe briefly why you believe your film is humanitarian/humanistic in content.
