The Bigger Picture: Independent Filmmaking and Community

Independent filmmaking allows you to focus all your attention on what’s happening directly in front of you. After all, it’s your passion, your voice, your project. But your film has the potential to have a larger, lasting benefit on the world around you. In this panel discussion, you will participate in conversation about how filmmakers and community have worked together to discover unforeseen intersections and opportunties that can turn your project into a broader, more fulfilling community experience.
