Angela Alston & Gwendolyn Alston
Yes, we’re sisters. Angela is based in Dallas, Texas, and Gwen in Madrid, Spain, with New York City as our hometown and hub. We share a passion for contemporary issues that affect our everyday lives and those of future generations. We’ve been working together on projects to support filmmakers achieve their outreach and engagement goals since 2007.
We design and manage outreach and marketing campaigns for independent films.
We work with meaningful films that touch hearts and ignite minds. Our purpose is to help filmmakers achieve their vision and goals.
We help our clients’ films reach their core audience through strategic campaigns that include film festival strategy, community engagement, online and social media marketing, and strategic partnerships.
We offer a variety of options for working together, short or long term. Possibilities include phone consultations, festival launches, and year-long collaborations. How do we start?
