"You can’t just want your film to be a powerful tool for creating social change. YOU HAVE TO ENSURE IT!" - Working Films
The Quiet Little Place team will be heading to NY in August for our first film residence with Working Films. As a recent grantee of the Fledgling Fund, were were chose to be part of the week long activities that will help us refine audience engagement plans for Sin by Silence.
"This interactive workshop focuses on the nuts & bolts of audience and community engagement campaigning for non-fiction films. Working Films will guide a select group of grantees from the Fledgling Fund and Chicken & Egg Pictures as they create and/or refine audience engagement plans for their non-fiction media and film projects. Linking the documentaries to organizations committed to progressive social change will be a key component of the residency."
Another great piece about domestic violence aired on NPR today. It featured a segment from Sin by Silence, and has sparked great discussions on the topic of shelter budget cuts in the midst of skyrocketing demand for help.
“When the economy goes down, the number of domestic abuse cases usually goes up. KPCC’s Susan Valot says that seems to be the case in Orange County, where it’s taking more work to place battered women and their children in safe havens.”
