In recent years crowd funding has proved to be a powerful tool to fund creative projects. Thanks to a new application it's now possible for creators to reach out in a broader way. Today Crowdculture launched an interface that makes it possible for other platforms to use the system's crowd funding mechanism. The swedish platform Filmbasen is the first to use the technology and together they've opened Scandinavia's first crowd funding platform for film.
The Crowdculture interface allows various platforms to easily connect and interact with each other. The submitted projects will be published on multiple platforms and access a greater audience. For the projects this means increased visibility and an opportunity to break into other markets.
- Now we can connect to any European platform at any time. This increases the ability for users to reach an international market, says the founder Max Valentin.
Crowdculture is an addition to existing cultural funding systems and enables more people to benefit from the public funds. The platform is in many ways different from a "normal" crowd funding platform like Kickstarter. For instance, the projects will have access to a public co-financing and all the donations goes directly to projects.
- We have taken the crowd funding logic to a European context based on a hybrid economic model in which public funds are reinforced with money from the private and civil sector, Max Valentin continues.
In addition to Filmbasen there are several regional funds open, including Kronoberg, Blekinge and Södermanland, and soon calls also opens in the region of Dalarna and Västra Götaland.
