Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Scottish Documentary Institute and Take One Action present a unique opportunity for filmmakers and changemakers to deepen their understanding of impact strategy, delivery and evaluation. In collaboration with third-sector organisations, film can play a vital role in bringing about positive social and environmental change, and offers fresh avenues for engagement. Over the last decade, documentary filmmakers have been pioneering innovative funding, marketing and distribution models to reach wider audiences and share the stories at the heart of their work. These approaches, now also adopted for fictions, typically combine crowdfunding with partnership release strategies, maximising small marketing budgets through viral campaigns, community screenings and grassroots engagement.
