"Making Your Media Matter" Conference + Made in L.A. Field Report

The next day, after a round of meetings with potential outreach partners, we headed to the 5th Annual Making Your Media Matters Conference, organized by American University's Center for Social Media. It was a day and a half of interesting discussion around issues of social documentary-making, including an amazing keynote speech on documentary ethics, by Gordon Quinn of Kartemquin films.

It was an honor to share panel with Scott Kirsner, author of the CinemaTech blog, Maia L. Ermita, Director of Festival and Outreach at Arts Engine, Andrew Mer of Snagfilms. Wendy Levy, Director of Creative Programming of the Bay Area Video Coalition, was a wonderful moderator and kept us all in track! If you want to listen to the whole panel, Scott posted his audio recording of the panel on his blog -check it out!

Around the same time as the conference, the Center for Social Media released a Field Report that provides a "case study" of Made in L.A., from fundraising to distribution. Special thanks to the report's author, Kafi Kareem, and to Center Director Pat Aufderheide and Associate Director Alison Hanold for all of their help and for inviting us to be part of the conference!
