Doc U on the Road: Washington, DC

By IDA Editorial Staff

If you live anywhere but Southern California, you’re probably starting to feel pretty left out. And with all the great Doc U events we’ve been hosting this past year, we totally get it. That’s why we’re taking Doc U on the road!  Doc U on the road is made possible by funding received from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Our first stop is Washington, DC, where our Doc U will be focused on answering the question: Can Your Doc Really Change the World?

These days, it seems as though more and more non-fiction filmmakers are trying to change the world through emotional, cause-driven documentaries. But if one is hoping to use the power of film to advocate for solutions to complex issues and urge people to take action, how can you make sure your film has the greatest possible impact?

On December 5, join Nina Seavey, Director of the Documentary Center at George Washington University, as she moderates a discussion with founder and Executive Director of Just Vision Ronit Avni, Associate Director at the Center for Social Media Angelica Das, founder/principal at The 2050 Group Adam J. Segal, and co-founder and Executive Director of Working Films Robert West as they discuss the ways and means of producing documentary films with the potential to effect real change.

Our panel of filmmakers, organizational change-makers, and communications experts will address big questions and more. What they have to say could change the way you think about changing the world.
