Angela Alston and Gwendolyn Alston (yes, we’re sisters!) began working as an outreach team for independent film in 2008, with our first client, Niijii Films, and their documentary A Sea Change. What started out as Gwen stepping in at a key point in the outreach campaign, turned into an 18-month collaboration. We have not stopped working together since then.
We eventually teamed up with Lisa Smithline from Brave New Films. Together, we have developed a consistent and effective approach to the design and management of outreach, marketing, community engagement and impact campaigns–with our specially designed toolkits, our diverse and combined skills and a commitment to serve our clients fully to achieve their goals.
We work with independent films on environmental, social, and spiritual issues that touch hearts, ignite discussion, and inspire action.
Our approach is to determine the filmmaker’s goals, identify and connect with the film’s core audience, and provide measurable results.
