Campaigns around Documentaries - Busting the Myths
Some say: “I’m a filmmaker, not an activist.”. Others say: “I’m a filmmaker, so I need to be an activist” And both assumptions are myths.
More and more producers and distributors are experimenting with outreach campaigns that engage audiences in new ways, build non-profit partnerships or aim to make the world a better place.
Yet many remain sceptical: “Why should we bother with this in the first place?” – “I’m not going to make any money off this, am I?” – “My intern can be the impact producer.” – “My film is not issue-driven so it’s not for me.”
Ben Kempas will be on a mission to counter 13 of the most common misconceptions around outreach work. Because the worst myth is: “We can think about all this later.”
Moderated by Ove Rishøj Jensen.
