Which Crowdfunding Platform Is Best for Your Nonprofit? This blog post was originally written by Ginny Mies, Content Curator at TechSoup Global. This post has been adapted and expanded for a Canadian audience by Tierney Smith, Community Engagement Manager. It seems like there's a new crowdfunding website out there every week, but which one is right for your nonprofit? I looked at a few popular crowdfunding sites and dissected their cost plans, nonprofit support, and special features.

The Complete Guide to Getting Started with the ARRI ALEXA Within the span of the past three years, the ARRI ALEXA has become the gold-standard for cameras in productions of all shapes and sizes, from the highest-end Hollywood extravaganzas to television shows and commercials and beyond.

The Untold Story Behind Kickstarter Stats [INFOGRAPHIC] See the full infographic below. A few weeks ago, I wrote about Kickstarter failures that were difficult to find because Kickstarter intentionally prevents failed campaigns from being indexed by the search engines…and how I managed to find (what turned out to be) about 59% of the unsuccessfully funded projects. My article generated a lot of attention, including Mashable and VentureBeat (which republished my post). I’d like to think that it was all this attention that finally led Kickstarter to launch a stats page with data and basic metrics about the projects. I was wrong. Prof.
Crowdfunding Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people, typically via the internet. One early-stage equity expert described it as “the practice of raising funds from two or more people over the internet towards a common Service, Project, Product, Investment, Cause, and Experience, or SPPICE.” The crowdfunding model is fueled by three types of actors: the project initiator who proposes the idea and/or project to be funded; individuals or groups who support the idea; and a moderating organization (the "platform") that brings the parties together to launch the idea.

In this blog we would like to share these questions with you, so that you can decide for yourself if perhaps there is a bright future for you in fundraising consulting.
List of documentary film festivals Documentary film festivals are film festivals devoted solely to documentary film, which is a broad category of visual expression that is based on the attempt, in one fashion or another, to "document" reality. Although "documentary film" originally referred to movies shot on film stock, it has subsequently expanded to include video and digital productions that can be either direct-to-video or made for a television series. Documentary, as it applies here, works to identify a "filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception" that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries. In many cities around the world, documentary film festivals are held annually to showcase documentaries made that year. Many of them are theme or genre specific. Africa
