Indie on KissKissBankBank
KissKissBankBank is committed alongside musicians, authors, film or documentary directors, directors, photographers, video game creators, actors, dancers, youtubers ... who self-produce or self-publish. In 2020, we have already supported 660 creators. These creators were supported by almost 54,198 citizens.
Music, cinema, publishing, theater ... one thing in common: self-production
When KissKissBankBank was created in 2009, Vincent Ricordeau, Ombline le Lasseur and Adrien Aumont had given themselves a mission: to support cultural creation. How? By allowing everyone to stand in solidarity with young creators thanks to crowdfunding. They thought first and foremost of cinema and music, their original sectors. The support quickly went beyond cultural circles to open up to solidarity and entrepreneurial projects: a success thanks to the strength of the collective.
We do not forget our initial mission, however. Cultural creation remains today a commitment which is particularly close to our team's heart. On a daily basis we support the projects of creators or artists who turn to self-production or self-publishing. Our objective ? Lead you to the success of your crowdfunding campaigns and above all, to the realization of your cultural projects in complete independence!

Demain, le film by Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent
In 2012, Mélanie Laurent and Cyril Dion came across a study that announced the possible disappearance of part of humanity by 2100. Three years later, they embarked on the documentary “Demain, le film”. A film that sets out to discover positive and concrete initiatives for ecology in ten countries. This documentary, a great success with the general public, won the César for best documentary in 2016.
The film crew collected € 444,390 from 10,266 citizens engaged for more ecology.

Calls for projects to support indie
To provide ever more support to independent creators, we imagine each year contests and calls for projects in collaboration with our committed partners. Together, we want to give all the keys to success to these independent cultural projects! Discover three calls for projects launched on KissKissBankBank.
Video games : “La Game Cup”, 1st French Cup of independent creation
To propel independent video game creators, we imagined La Game Cup with Jeux Vidéo Magazine and La Banque Postale. What is La Game Cup exactly? A competition that allows self-produced creators to finance their new video game. As a result, up to € 25,000 to be won, donated to their KissKissBankBank campaign and numerous prizes offered by the operation's partners.
Applications are closed for this year and the final will take place in the fall: can't wait!
