Documentary films unveil important truths, challenge assumptions, and often compel audiences to take action. Many of today's filmmakers are faced with an additional challenge—how do they ensure their film will have a significant impact on the public and on the policies their story highlights? The collaboration of filmmakers with NGOs and community groups has created a new distribution model, and the measure of success now reaches beyond sales to changes in public perception and policy. Join filmmaker and activist Abigail Disney, director Michael Collins Give Up Tomorrow, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Impact Partners Dan Cogan, producer Cynthia Lowen of The Bully Project, Josh Baran of Baran Communications, and others for an insightful discussion on the new paths of distribution for nonfiction films and the ways filmmakers and their subjects are making their voices heard.

Whether they're using 35mm or Super 16mm, filmmakers have a certain aesthetic in mind when they choose to shoot on film.

This discussion features TFF '09 filmmakers Damien Chazelle (Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench), Julio DePietro (The Good Guy), and Bette Gordon (Handsome Harry, Variety), cinematographers Stuart Dryburgh (Oscar®-nominated for The Piano) and Fred Elmes (Blue Velvet, The Ice Storm), and producer and former TFF juror Christine Vachon (Killer Films).
