With the money raised from our Indie Go-Go campaign, we have set up a listing on Withoutabox. The following is a direct link to the Submissions Page.
Thursday, January 12, 2012
The Indie Go-Go campaign ended at midnight. We raised a little over $1,000. It’s better than starting out with nothing. We’ll take that money and most likely officially post the festival with Withoutabox. Here’s a last minute blurb about the Indie Go-Go campaign.
With the end of the Indie Go-Go crowd-funding campaign, we begin a new chapter, pursuing sponsorship. We did that tonight actually by sponsoring LaunchFest, an event put on by iHollywood Forum in conjunction with CES. The event’s topic this year was about ‘Attracting Funding and Social Media/Mobile Marketing Trends.’ The event took place at the Clarion Hotel, the same block as the Royal House, near the LV Convention Center.

Attendees were encouraged to check-in using Yelp.
6:00PM Arrived & Schmoozed, 7PM – 7:30PM Videos & Short Films, 8pm – 9pm Music!
A fantastic band, the Roxy Gunn Project, rocked the Royal House! They won an award for “Vegas Stars of Tomorrow” at the Vegas Rocks Magazine Awards Show; Cast in the upcoming feature movie “Road to Hell”, loosely based sequel to the ’84 feature “Streets of Fire”.
