Impact and Media Strategies for Documentary Films and Film Festivals

Creative Impact & Audience Engagement Campaigns



I design impact and audience 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 possibilities that outreach brings 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:


Impact Campaign Design

Impact Campaign Implementation

Strategic Partnerships

Social Media Advice and Management

E-mail Outreach

Media and Outreach Strategies for Film Festivals

Screening Tours (Universities and colleges, museums, non profit organizations, faith-based groups, etc)

Website Content Audit


I have been an integral part of the social impact campaign for the Emmy-nominated, P.O.V documentary film Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North (Katrina Browne, 2008) securing hundreds of events nationwide and internationally at educational institutions, museums, faith based venues, public forums and more. I have led the outreach efforts for the Erik Barnouw honorable mention, and PBS special presentation historical documentary Rebel (Maria Agui Carter, 2013), and led a highly successful grassroots campaign for 1913 Seeds of Conflict (Ben Loeterman, 2014). I have worked with different film festivals in a variety of programmatic, media and outreach roles. My latest campaign was for The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital (DCEFF) on Tour Boston in 2016.

"...Marga has been an incredibly solid, reliable, thorough, conscientious, diplomatic, caring and savvy partner for five years now as she maneuvers a whole host of complex dynamics with our very public oriented work... Marga also served as the translator for the Spanish-subtitled edition of the film. She is a great writer – in Spanish and English."
