The IDA Presents Doc U: Working With Publicists -– How to Get the Most Out of Your Film’s Release
How you release your doc—and how audiences see it—have changed dramatically in the past decade, offering filmmakers more and more ways to connect audiences with their films. What hasn’t changed is the value an experienced publicist can bring to your team as you try to get the attention of critics, bloggers, influencers and viewers, and perhaps pick up an award or two along the way.
Whether you’re doing festivals, DIY, day and date, or multi-platform, a publicist can be the most valuable person at your side, helping to develop a release strategy, bringing in strategic partners, and getting the feature story that will deliver what every film needs to survive: eyeballs.
Moderated by Josh Welsh, Co-President of Film Independent, this Doc U will feature a panel of leading publicists for documentaries, including Amy Grey, President of Dish Communications, David Magdael, President of David Magdael & Associates, Inc. and Nancy Willen, President of Acme PR.
