Publicly funded Veronica Mars set to kick off the spring Paley Fest

The 31st annual Paley Fest has just released its first three events. First on the list would be the highly anticipated movie sequel to the cult favorite TV show, Veronica Mars. This is no ordinary film; this would the first major film to be completely produced by the mass public.

On 13 March, 2013, writer Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell launched a fundraising campaign to produce the film through Kickstarter. On its first day on Kickstarter, the project broke the record of being the fastest project to collect $1 million and then even $2 million towards the end of the day. It also achieved the highest minimal pledging goal achieved and is now considered the largest successful film project on Kickstarter.

The date of the panel is no coincidence, the cast along with the writer, Rob Thomas, would inaugurate the Paley Fest on 13 March, 2014, exactly one year to the date of its Kickstarter campaign, and also a day prior to its limited release in the US.

The William S. Paley Television Festival founded in 1984, is an extraordinary interactive pop culture event produced by The Paley Center for Media that connects fans with the casts and creators of their favorite series. Named after the founder of both the Paley Center and CBS, Paley Fest is a two-week event where the audience gets a sneak preview of the new episodes or highlights of the featured work followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with the cast and creative team. Paley Fest 2014 would be held from 13-28 March.

Other panels announced so far at the annual fest include Paley fest regulars, American Horror Story: Coven and Pretty Little Liars. The full line up is scheduled to be released on 8 January. In addition to the aforementioned, Paley Fest would change its venue from the Saban Theater, which can accommodate about 1600 people in Beverly Hills to the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland, which can accommodate up to 2800.

Veronica Mars is scheduled to make its India release in mid 2014.
