This event was recorded live on Wednesday, April 20, 2022.

Documentary distribution planning is often overlooked until the editing starts. However, when long-term strategy, grassroots organizing and audience building begin during production, they can have a profound impact on your distribution goals. Ingenuity at every stage contributes to your outreach momentum. Join distribution educator and author Rachel Gordon (The Documentary Distribution Toolkit), filmmaker Chanda Chevannes  (Living Downstream) who also wrote The Roadmap to Creative Distribution and educational distribution expert James-Michael Boyer from Collective Eye to hear inspirational and practical examples of exactly how to engineer your documentary’s journey to the world.
