Media That Matters is a conference for established and aspiring filmmakers, nonprofit communications leaders, funders, and students who want to learn and share cutting-edge practices to make their media matter.  This year's theme, "Change for Good," features conversations about how independent social change filmmakers can execute integrated campaigns that are strategic, action-oriented, and have enduring impact.  This event is co-sponsored by Kartemquin Films and Gordon Quinn will be attending.
