This month may be a game changer for US-based independent film investing. In the past those looking to raise funds for their films could not advertise to the public. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) required them to only have individual meetings with potential investors one at a time. This of course was very time consuming and expensive. Now the SEC has voted to approve Title II of the JOBS Act, and lifted the ban on “General Solicitation.” Filmmakers will now be able to advertise their film investments, so long as they make reasonable efforts that investors financing the film are accredited. Filmmakers can promote their investments on websites, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
