Film Sprout is offering a great series of workshops in April. I had the opportunity last year to sit with Caitlin Bryce and was deeply impressed. There are only 15 spots and it only costs $150 so sign up fast.
The first workshop in the series, From the Ground Up: Building Grassroots Distribution for your Independent Film, is a crash course in the strategic and practical steps necessary for rallying a motivated audience around a successful community screening campaign for your film.
In four intensive hours, we'll discuss a broad range of case studies, identify helpful tricks-of-the-trade, and walk through the nuts-and-bolts tools you'll need--from contracts to contacts--to launch a rewarding community screenings effort.
At the end of the workshop, you'll receive a chance to pitch your own grassroots outreach and screening plan to an intimate panel of seasoned filmmakers, outreach coordinators, and programmers--and to get valuable guidance in return.
It's Sunday April 11th 2-6P in Brooklyn, so act now. And let me know what you think of it.
