Join us for an inspiring weekend workshop designed to jump start campaigns for a limited number of excellent social issue documentaries on the 23rd-25th, July 2010. Outcomes include the identification of a range of potential outreach partners – including leading non-profits and social entrepreneurs as well as corporate and branding agencies.
The Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation and Working Films designed this workshop to create effective and strategic outreach campaigns and non-traditional distribution plans – reaching the audiences who need these films. Working Films’ co-founders Robert West and Judith Helfand and their team have masterminded campaigns behind feature docs such as Rory Kennedy’s Emmy Award-winning The Ghosts of Abu Ghraib and Helfland’s Everything’s Cool, resulting in significant shifts in the marketplace, public and political opinion in the US. Working Films’ new full-time partnership with Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation brings this high-level expertise to the UK filmmaking community.
The aim of the workshop is to help you:
• Develop audience and community engagement strategies
• Identify potential strategic partners (i.e. charities, NGOs and brands)
• Form an outreach strategy specific to your film
• Leverage and extend the life of your film
• Make social networking work for you
Each project will leave the Workshop with an outline of activities and proposed partners appropriate for pre-release, release and post-release to give your film a long and effective life.
