Harmony Korine Teams With Rotterdam Fest8 Sep, 2010 By: Billy Gil
Acclaimed director Harmony Korine (Gummo, Mister Lonely) has teamed with the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) for a new project for the fest’s Cinema Reloaded digital film production and online fundraising platform.
Korine will collect finances for his next film entirely through Cinema Reloaded and will premiere the film at the IFFR in January 2011, alongside two previously announced projects from Ho Yuhang (15Malyasia) and Alexis Dos Santos (Unmade Beds). Korine introduced the project today with a video message on .
Cinema Reloaded launched earlier this year and allows filmmakers to garner funding online from film fans globally. Korine, Yuhang and Dos Santos will keep contributors updated through video messages on the platform’s site.
A pretty exciting new way of funding independent films, no? Perhaps they’ll screen the films online too, exclusively to contributors?
