Sundance announces it’s 2016 documentary fund grantees and Even When I Fall sits proudly amongst an amazing selection of films!
Sky, Elhum and Julia (Even When I Fall’s fab new impact producer) attended the Impact Producers lab in Finland in preparation for the Good Pitch, Copenhagen 2017.
” Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues – to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society”
We are thrilled to announce that Even When I Fall has been awarded support by Fork Films:
“Fork Films creates and supports media that makes an important societal contribution, with a particular emphasis on projects that bring women’s voices to the forefront”. (Fork Films)
And also selected for the Bertha BRITDOC connect fund to help us with outreach and community engagement:
“Films have inspired people to engage and to act. They have led to changes in law, policy and practice. They have affected the way people give and/or invest money. They have led viewers to question the status quo and to care more about their communities and the world around them. But for a film to achieve all this, it needs a structured outreach and audience engagement plan, and the capacity to implement it.” (Brit Doc).
Thanks to all who supported our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. With 708 backers we exceeded our target at £31, 071 – amazing!
