Outreach and Distribution Strategies for Documentary Films & Film Festivals

With a background in journalism, screenwriting and film production, I run my own impact and engagement strategies consulting firm for independent documentaries and film festivals.


I believe in the power of stories to inspire change and encourage action. I understand the importance of designing strong, creative campaigns that reach wide audiences, elevate films and extend their life through well-designed, multi-platform strategies.


I have led outreach efforts for great documentaries and film festivals. Some recent projects include: Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North (2008, PBS/POV and Emmy nominee), 1913 Seeds of Conflict (2015, PBS broadcast), Rebel (2014, PBS broadcast), I Know a Man... Ashley Bryan (2016), J. Fred Woell: An American Vision (2017) and Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival and Symposium 2017 and 2018.


I also freelance as a producer, scriptwriter and editor both in English and Spanish.
