What We Do

We create outreach and community engagement strategies for independent filmmakers and other content creators.

We work closely with you to build the strategy best suited to your goals and the film’s message. How we do it...

community engagement

"The documentary film was conceived and developed as an instrument for public use. It was conceived, moreover, as an instrument to be used systematically in all the fields of public instruction and enlightenment." - John Grierson, Founder of the Documentary Film Movement speaking in 1947

"Only connect!" - E.M. Forster, Howard's End

"Audience engagement is the process of moving a film's audience from passive viewing to active involvement with the issue represented. It is what happens after audiences see the film and want to use their energy, resources, ideas, connections or time to make a difference." - Emily Verellen, From Distribution to Audience Engagement

"Patience, persistence and agility get you far." - Sonal Uberoi, Business owner
