From the Heart Productions has created this new platform where visitors to our main website can find all our fiscally sponsored projects. Called From the Heart Indie Films, it will allow visitors and donors the opportunity to fund all our films fundraising on our WeDidit and Fund My Film Platforms (and more).
On the From the Heart Productions website under the Fiscal Sponsorship tab, there is a drop down menu. On the menu, it will say Fiscally Sponsored Films and Projects. When you click on that, visitors are taken to this From the Heart Indie Films platform to view all our excellent projects by our talented filmmakers.
Film projects will be listed alphabetically. The platform though allows searches by different listing criteria including:
- Keywords – This includes wording in your logline or project description that you can add to listing.
- Project Title
- Genre – A drop down menu will give the visitor to the site the option of choosing documentary, narrative feature, short film, etc.
- Project Producer
- Project Director
All the better to help donors find you!
