Join Film & Campaign's Ben Kempas and Rachel Caplan for a Zoom chat with The D-Word's Doug Block. We'll be discussing smart strategies for outreach, organising, and online events in our current theatrical and non-theatrical landscape.
"Distributors and sales agents have given a stark assessment of what some are describing as a ‘crisis’ facing feature documentaries at the global theatrical box office," writes Screen Daily.
How can we respond to this? How can we turn theatrical screenings into events that draw a much wider audience? And how can we navigate the changing landscape of non-theatrical distribution?
We'll talk about our ongoing campaign around Emma Davie’s new documentary THE OIL MACHINE, and about our expertise mobilising grassroots to get people into the theatres; using NationBuilder campaigning software to get organised; and producing online events that resemble a real-life experience as closely as possible.
