Thinking beyond the box office and film festival circuit, how do we achieve meaningful, transformative impact through filmmaking? In this workshop, several filmmakers and producers will share their insight and strategies around impact campaigns that aim to reach communities and change policy through dissemination of - and engagement in -  films in new and novel ways.

Join us to learn about unique approaches to engage communities, inform political leaders, and support organizations about human rights and social justice issues through film. Panelists include: Ivaneide Bandeira Cardozo (Neidinha), Catherine Masud, Alex Pritz, and Nick Stuart, each who bring decades of experience in impact and engagement work.
