The CineCoup Film Accelerator is a disruptive new model for filmmakers to develop, market and finance their feature films. Filmmaking teams apply to CineCoup with a two-minute trailer then advance through a gamified selection funnel that’s designed to package their projects and build fan support on the CineCoup social web platform.
All filmmakers who participate stand to gain valuable audience feedback, social marketing savvy and a professional online pitch package bolstered by fan support. The Top 10 projects will be optioned for development. A jury of industry mavericks and an advisory CineCoup Superfan will select one project for up to $1 million (CDN) in production financing and guaranteed release in Cineplex theatres. CineCoup is the brainchild of media entrepreneur, J. Joly.
