Impact and Engagement Strategies for Documentary Films & Film Festivals
ABOUT YOUR PROJECT
I design impact and engagement campaigns for documentary films and film festivals, and if you are interested, I implement them too. I do so with passion, knowledge and a strong drive for social change and public debate, as well as many years of experience in the field. Over the years, I have had the pleasure to work with many amazing media makers and I know it's often hard to think about all the distribution and outreach possibilites available to your project, so I think of them for you. I maximize resources to develop customized, cost effective campaigns.
Whether achieving educational impact, generating public discussion, changing policy or engaging the public, my campaigns focus on your goals, exposing films to a wide range of audiences locally or/and nationwide and maximizing impact through a creative approach. I specialize in: Campaign Design and Implementation, Community and Educational Screening Tours, Film Festival Circuit, Strategic Partnerships, Social Media Advice and Management, Website Content Audit, DVD/VOD/Theatrical Advice, Mail Marketing, and EPKs.
I was an integral part of the social impact campaign for the Emmy-nominated, PBS/POV documentary film Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North (2008) securing hundreds of events nationwide and internationally at educational institutions, museums, faith based venues, public forums and more. I led the outreach efforts for the PBS documentaries Rebel (2014) and 1913 Seeds of Conflict (2015) and for I Know a Man...Ashley Bryan (2016) and J. Fred Woell: An American Vision (2017). I have worked with different film festivals in a variety of programmatic, media and outreach roles including The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital (DCEFF) on Tour Boston 2016/2017 and DOUBLE EXPOSURE Investigative Film Festival and Symposium 2017.
