Media With Impact: Docs, Features, TV & News – Tools for a Culture in Crisis?

Meeting Room 11, Level 1

In an increasingly fragmented market, how do you draw an audience to stories that matter? What can ‘impact’ projects do to actually have, well..impact. This panel consisting of industry experts with backgrounds in feature film, factual films, current affairs and branded content will discuss strategies, new collaboration models and opportunities and challenges in the impact sphere. With dwindling resources on the one hand, and content providers moving into servicing niche audiences, how do you reach those who need to know but may not want to?
