Can a documentary really change the world? These days it seems as though more and more doc-makers are giving it a try. But if you're hoping to use the power of film to advocate for solutions to complex social issues and to urge people to take action, how can you make sure that your documentary has the greatest possible impact? What kinds of outreach and marketing campaigns are the most effective? How can you best partner with non-profits to get your message out? What do funders and broadcasters expect from documentary filmmakers? And what's the best way to build a successful social action campaign? The panel of filmmakers, funders and communication experts we've assembled for the December 2010 Doc U will address all of these questions and many more. What they have to say could change the way you think about changing the world.
