Introducing Launch PAD, a first-of-its-kind initiative that matches nationally known brands with new documentary films sourced by the DOC NYC Film Festival.  There will be a DOC NYC panel devoted to this initiative called “Branded Content” on Wed. Nov. 2 at 4:15 pm at the IFC Center.

Launched by Thom Powers, the Artistic Director for DOC NYC, and filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and Super Size Me) in partnership with Grey New York, Launch PAD aims to provide filmmakers with access to prospective brand partners whose expertise and financial support (towards Prints, Advertising and Distribution) will help them build their audiences.

Through Launch PAD brands will be able to leverage fast-growing, passionate and targeted audiences in a new, meaningful and authentic way.
