The unofficial theme of this years' Tribeca Film Festival must be music because here's another film that follows along that path. "Amanda F---ing Palmer on the Rocks," is a short documentary feature that follows rockstar Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) and how she raised $1.2 million dollars on Kickstarter to fund a career outside the industry.

"Amanda F---ing Palmer on the Rocks," is a short documentary that follows rock star Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) and as she raises $1.2 million dollars on Kickstarter to fund a career outside the industry. 

In the trailer for the film, which is directed by Ondi Timoner (Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner for 2009 documentary "We Live in Public"), we catch up with badass Amanda Palmer, who holds a record for crowd-funding in the music industry. Mixed in with clips of her performances, we also get a voiceover from the punk artist, who insists that "we're allowed to just f---ing help each other!" It looks to be a fun, loud and mostly, importantly indie. 

"Amanda F---ing Palmer on the Rocks" will screen at Tribeca on April 19th at noon. To purchase tickets and check out more screening times visit the Tribeca site.
