A 2014 documentary which explores the effects of animal agriculture on the environment and the policies of major environmental organisations such as Greenpeace on the issue, Cowspiracy was entirely crowdfunded by the directors Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn, raising $117,092 from 1449 individual backers on the crowdfunding platform IndieGoGo.

The crowdfunding campaign was so successful that the surplus money raised allowed the film to be dubbed into two other languages – Spanish and German, and subtitled in 10 others. A new cut of the film, directed by Leonardo DiCaprio, was released in 2015.
