Normally we do not not advertise, but rules are there to be broken…
It’s last chance today if you want to take part in the EDN workshop in Turin called Outreach and Distribution – ”a three-day workshop where producers and directors shape the strategies for the release of their next documentary, including the industry launch and getting the film out to a general audience. The format combines general talks by outreach experts with hands on work with shaping a concrete plan for each of the six (maximum) selected documentary projects.”
It takes place end of September and the reason I want to promote it has three legs: 1) We need to find new ways to reach the audience, especially for films which fall outside the mainstream.
The two main tutors are 2) Ove Rishøj Jensen who stood behind the launch of the two Swedish documentaries “Harbour of Hope” and “Every Face has a Name” (photo), directed by Magnus Gertten and 3) Ben Kempas who stood behind the launch of the Scottish “I am Breathing” by Emma Davie.
Very strong films that reached/reaches the audience because of well-thought and performed serious campaigns far away from “normal” loud-shouting, classical marketing.
Go for it!
