Description

MAKE A MOVIE, CHANGE THE WORLD?


Are you a storyteller or a documentary filmmaker? For a film to have impact, it must have a story—and the audience must connect with the story profoundly. For a film to have real social impact, it must expand our understanding, change our perspective, and challenge us to do something. Done right, film can be one of the most powerful tools available to manifest these connections with an audience, who can then help change the world. What elements can you use to create a connection with the audience? How do you encourage an audience to take action? Do you know in development if your film can make a difference? How important is it to join forces with an ‘impact partner?’ What constitutes an impact partner? Join us for coffee, bagels, and conversation with visiting and local filmmakers as they share strategies for connecting with a powerful purpose.
