Developing effective channels of communications allows you to leverage your story and find a community of passionate supporters.

In this workshop filmmakers will be introduced to the most important aspects of communications, community development and crowdfunding for documentary projects on Documentary Australia’s platform.

During this workshop Diego Garcia Luna (Digital and Comms Manager) will use examples of successful documentary projects to introduce important concepts and workshop their project’s communication plans.

You should leave the workshop with an understanding of how to effectively communicate their story, whilst growing their community to run successful crowdfunding campaings.


How It Works:

The workshop is designed to leave attendees with a number of takeaways essential to developing their community of supporters to effectively crowdfund.

  • A deeper understanding of social impact and how to better engage supporters.
  • Insight into the development of a persona for their impact documentaries to facilitate communication
  • The ability to effectively develop a community of supporters
