The Documentary Summit returns to the Bay Area for another fun and information packed weekend. This time around, we turn our attention to something near and dear to the doc filmmakers' heart: advocacy. Docs have the power to move people to act politically, for social change or to just support an important or worthy cause. And with the new digital means of distribution and connectivity, it's now possible to engage a large audience very quickly and inexpensively using tech. 

 

So this year will look at advocacy documentary filmmaking (as well as our tried and true views into general documentary filmmaking) and the technology available to you to have the impact of your film last beyond its running time - all so you can get your message out there and help make a difference in the world. No pressure.
