Livestreams worth watching at the International Journalism Festival

Crowdfunding journalism celebrities… is that a thing?

If it is then you can expect to see some of them this week at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy scheduled to take place Apr. 15-19.

Many of the news startups we’ve written about before –Direkt36Krautreporter, De Correspondent – will be there. Having raised more than one million euros, Krautreporter and De Correspondent are responsible for two of the highest grossing campaigns in crowdfunding journalism history.

Not in Italy you say? You can watch many of the festival discussions livestream on YouTube. Join the discussion on Twitter with #ijf15.

Check this website for a full schedule or list of more than 500 speakers. Some crowdfunding-inspired events:

IJF carried out a six-figure crowdfunding campaign last year when more than €115,000 was raised to make IJF14 possible last year. An exhaustive study of the campaign found that the campaign not only brought in the money needed but had immense reach online, exposing millions of people to IJF.

See this article for a breakdown of crowdfunding journalism presentations at IJF, past and present.

IJF is a free event that was held for the first time in 2007.

Sponsors and volunteers from all over the world make the event possible.
