By actively trying to connect established filmmakers with seriousinvestors that would normally not meet one another, entire newfinancing models are going to emerge. When I joined Slated lastmonth, I immediately received emails from individuals tracking my
next documentary film, "Privacy.””
Kusama-Hinte said of Slated: "Slated is the most inspiredinnovation in independent film financing that I have seen in years.It is clearly built upon a profound knowledge of finance,filmmaking, and social networking and provides investors andfilmmakers the perfect marketplace in which to bring capital to filmproduction. It is more than a website or a company, it is the first
shot of a coming independent film revolution!”

PORTRAIT (Melissa Leo, Wenthworth Miller), Sally Potter’sBOMB (Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola), Marina Zenovich’sROMAN POLANSKI: ODD MAN OUT and Amy Redford’s
