Are you a director or producer of documentaries and you want to develop a convincing strategy to effectively reach audiences with your next film?
DocsBarcelona offers you the opportunity to maximize the potential of your project by participating in a high-level workshop on outreach strategy and impact distribution. The purpose of the workshop is to arrive at a concrete plan tailored to each selected film project. You can participate with a project in development or as an observer.
Filmmaking between Art and Activism
Let’s bust the great myths around outreach and impact work.
What are we going to work on?
Presentation of three selected projects (with trailers), represented by two to three people (often director, producer, outreach person). Initial assignment of up to three observers to each project.
Myths and Mechanics of a Campaign
From the big vision to a concrete strategy: why are we doing this, who are we targeting, how are we talking to them, and how do we keep them engaged?
