The International Documentary Association presents
DOC U: CAN YOUR DOC REALLY CHANGE THE WORLD?
in association with
Center for Social Media, The Documentary Center at George Washington University, Women in Film & Video, Docs in Progress
Can a documentary really change the world? These days it seems as though more and more doc-makers are giving it a try. But if you’re hoping to use the power of film to advocate for solutions to complex social issues and to urge people to take action, how can you make sure that your documentary has the greatest possible impact? What kinds of outreach and marketing campaigns are the most effective? How can you best partner with non-profits to get your message out? What do funders and broadcasters expect from documentary filmmakers? And what’s the best way to build a successful social action campaign? The panel of filmmakers, organizational changemakers, and communication experts we’ve assembled address all of these questions and many more. What they have to say could change the way you think about changing the world.
On December 5, join Nina Seavey, Director of the Documentary Center at George Washington University, as she moderates a discussion with Ronit Avni, founder and Executive Director of Just Vision, Angelica Das, Associate Director at the Center for Social Media, Adam J. Segal, founder/principal at the publicity agency The 2050 Group, and Robert West, co-founder and Executive Director of Working Films, on the ways and means of producing documentary films with the potential to effect real change.
