How can filmmakers support the impact of their film?

A Workshop on Impact Producing

This workshop explores the possibilities and effects that documentaries can achieve through impact campaigns. How can filmmakers support the public impact of their film with impact producing? Which films are suitable? How can an impact campaign, an impact producer or an impact agency be financed in Germany? How can an impact campaign help my film in times of pandemic? Valentin Thurn and Vivian Schröder will explore these questions together with the participants in an interactive workshop.

The event will be held in German.

Vivian Schröder
Impact Production (Good Pitch Germany / Media Frontline eV)

From Amsterdam’s international underground arts & culture magazine BABY to commercials to documentaries. My professional journey has spanned fashion, arts, advertising, the natural world, and filmmaking, which have given me curiosity, determination and trust in the magic of possibility. Organising and moderating the Climate Story Lab to Berlin in October 2020 confirmed my belief in the power of partnerships, building bridges across sectors through storytelling, the necessity of alternative financing schemes and carrying stories to the audiences who can make a difference. Together with the Human Rights Film Festival Berlin we now build on the connections and experiences we made during CSL and continue building for a Good Pitch event in Germany.
