Winning an Oscar may already be the career highlight for many people in the movie-making industry, but winning an Oscar with a film funded solely on Kickstarter is something else entirely; and that is exactly what the 'Inocente' documentary short is. Following the 15-year-old homeless girl living in California who refuses to give up on her dream of being an artist, the film truly has the backing of the people and not just the voting members of the Academy Awards.

The 'Inocente' documentary short is one of many films that have been backed on Kickstarter. Last month the online funding platform announced it raised $100 million for film projects, about 40 per cent of which went to fund documentaries.
