The Hometown Heroes Rally invites filmmakers from across the country to bring diverse stories rooted in real communities to the screen. Up to 5 winners will have their narrative feature executive produced by the Duplass Brothers and receive up to $25,000 in cash for production.

Great stories happen everywhere. And great films can be made anywhere. Enter Hometown Heroes: a crowdfunding rally looking for the next generation of filmmakers making movies with local community and resources: talent, locations, production houses and partners.

To participate, launch a crowdfunding campaign on Seed&Spark for a narrative feature film in your hometown, and start building your audience. Your “hometown” can be where you’re from, or the town or city you currently call home. The 10 successfully funded campaigns with the most campaign followers (raising a minimum of $7,500 in cash) will go on as finalists to pitch The Duplass Brothers. Up to 5 campaigns may receive the grand prize, and ALL participants will receive personalized local crew concierge from Cinematcher.

Grand Prize
Win up to $25,000, your film executive produced by the Duplass Brothers, and a 16TB hard drive from G-Tech!

(Winners announced November 1, 2017)

Go local!
In addition to the grand prize, we’ve partnered with film commissions, brands and organizations all across the country to provide local prizes covering everything from funding to marketing, which will be awarded throughout the rally based on audience support.
