Impact Nuts (and Bolts): Marketing, Movement Building, and Meaningful Representation

Monday, January 27, noon–2:00 p.m.
Kimball Art Center, 1401 Kearns Blvd.

We all know it—stories create impact. It’s now up to us—filmmakers, impact producers, advocates, funders, and distributors—to work together to fuel sustainable social and cultural change. Join Sue Obeidi from the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Jamie Dobie from Peace is Loud, and Darcy Heusel from NEON for a discussion on cultural representation, movement building, and targeted film marketing. They will live workshop a campaign for American Muslim, Adam Zucker’s timely documentary that follows five American Muslims living in New York City in the wake of the Trump administration’s travel ban. This event will take place on the third anniversary of the executive order. Moderated by Sonya Childress of Firelight Media.

Presented by the Muslim Public Affairs Council's Hollywood Bureau

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.
