What happens if the issuer reaches the target offering amount prior to the deadline?

The issuer can choose to close the round or keep raising funds until the closing date.

Is there assurance of liquidity?

There is no assurance of liquidity after 1 year in accordance with Reg. CF Rule 302(b)(1)(iii).

What types of offerings are hosted?

FilmCapital.io offers investments in the equity securities of issuers involved in independent filmmaking and content creation. Each of the issuers offering their securities on FilmCapital.io is carefully vetted to ensure they have relevant prior experience in content production.

How does the filmmaker onboarding process work?

FilmCapital.io works with each issuer to assist them in preparation of the offering materials. Offerings posted on FilmCapital.io must include all of the information required by the SEC under Regulation Crowdfunding. This includes basic identifying information about the issuer, the business and anticipated business plan of the issuer, the people operating the issuer, and the financial condition of the issuer. Investors may decide that this information is not enough to make a decision, which is w

How much can I invest?

Please refer to your “annual investment limit” which clearly explains that the “investment limit” pertains to the aggregate amount of securities during the 12-month period preceding the date of the current transaction purchased across all Regulation CF platforms and not just FilmCapital.io in accordance with Reg. CF 100(2).

What happens after the offer is live?

Each offering is listed on FilmCapital.io for a set amount of days. Any US resident can make an investment through the portal. Investments are held in escrow until a project successfully reaches its funding goal. If the project does not reach its funding goal, funds are returned to investors. If a project successfully reaches its funding goal within the offering timeline, funds are transferred to the issuer and the investor is issued securities.

What's the risk involved in investing in content?

Investments in Regulation Crowdfunding offerings are speculative and involve a high degree of risk, in part because the issuers are often early-stage companies with little or no operating history. Investments on FilmCapital.io may not include voting rights and investors will have no role in directing management. Investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest. Investors should consult their own financial advisor prior to making an investment.

Are there any restrictions in transferring securities?

Securities purchased in Regulation Crowdfunding transactions generally cannot be resold for a period of one year, unless the securities are transferred: (1) to the issuer of the securities; (2) to an “accredited investor”; (3) as part of an offering registered with the Commission; or (4) to a member of the family of the purchaser or the equivalent, to a trust controlled by the purchaser, to a trust created for the benefit of a member of the family of the purchaser or the equivalent, or in connec
