Inocente is the first Kickstarter-funded film to win an Academy Award
"The true story of a 15-year-old homeless girl has become the first Kickstarter-funded film to win an Oscar.
Inocente was made with the help of $52,527 (£35,000) raised by 294 backers in June last year.
The documentary was awarded with the prize for best documentary short at the ceremony.
Two other crowd-funded films, Kings Point and Buzkashi Boys, were also nominated but came away empty-handed."
