film webinar

This webinar will explore how to effectively integrate film into economic fairness campaigns. How do social issue documentary films do more than just raise awareness? How do you make your documentary film resonate with local audiences and issues? How do you build a bridge between community activist groups and the movements in your film? How do you create an audience engagement campaign that is unique, yet has ties to a movement that already exists? This Tax Fairness Tune-Up webinar will answer all these questions, and provide a framework on how to use film as an asset to economic fairness campaigns.
