Face2Face with The D-Word

Face2Face with The D-Word

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.

Veteran D-Worders will remember Ben from his 12 years serving as a D-Word Co-Host (2002-14). And those working with environmental docs or based in the Bay Area may well know Rachel as the former director of the San Francisco Green Film Festival (2010-20).

This session is free and open to all D-Word Pro members but requires advanced registration.
