At Kartemquin, we take pride in the impact our films have long after their first festival premiere or television airing. A comprehensive outreach and engagement strategy is enacted at the start of each new project, and we work extensively with specific partners and communities to ensure each film reaches the audiences that need them most.
In this newsletter we bring you some examples of the ways in which our films, new and old, have been finding diverse audiences and generating positive social change this spring.
In the Film Updates section you can read about how In The Family helped spur a landmark court victory against genetic patenting; how Milking the Rhino is helping to raise funds for a zoo in New Zealand, and how in-progress film On Beauty is already helping to alter perceptions of albinism. Below, as well as reading EXCLUSIVE news about No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson, learn how Typeface is inspiring artists across the world, and see how one group of childrens' attitudes towards immigrants were transformed by watching The New Americans.
While you're reading, please don't forget that as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization we cannot make these films - and maintain other initiatives, such as offering free feedback screenings to documentary filmmakers, nurturing emerging talent, and spearheading discussions of ethics, fair use, and media literacy - without your support.
