At Indie Visible we have over thirty years of combined experience in educational outreach and a steady finger on the pulse of the ever-shifting landscape of independent film. We combine our deep understanding of the nuanced dynamics of grassroots community engagement with a systematic approach which employs the use of technology. This synergy allows us to connect the power of stories to the communities who most need them, supporting a viable and scalable model for documentary distribution.
More than impact, our goal is to help transform the independent documentary landscape from a shot in the dark to a thriving ecosystem that can support a film through all phases of its life cycle.
“With a handcrafted approach, we help films find their audience."
We manage targeted or large scale community screenings campaigns from start to finish by finding your core audience, managing partners and leads, assisting hosts with setting up successful screening events, booking events and speaking appearances and measuring impact.
We will consult with you on all aspects of distribution, from creating a successful strategy that fits your goals to your festival run, outreach & engagement campaign to partnership building, optimizing your website and social media presence.
We create impactful campaign materials to support each project. From informative one-sheets to in-depth, beautifully designed viewer discussion guides, our materials help reach audiences and spark meaningful dialogue and community action.
