Growing grassroots distribution and community action for documentaries. www.filmsprout.org
Film Sprout is a boutique consulting agency that helps filmmakers broaden the audience and social impact of their documentaries through public screening events; strategic communication with audiences and stakeholders; and engagement initiatives that translate the viewer experience into on-the-ground action. Combining the goals of independent film distribution with the aims of advocacy, Film Sprout helps documentary filmmakers secure revenue, swell viewership and spark change through film.
Film Sprout is the architect of national screening and outreach initiatives for dozens of independent documentaries, including King Corn, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, The End of the Line, A Small Act, Bag It, Unfinished Spaces and The Invisible War. Film Sprout workshops and presentations on grassroots film distribution have rallied enterprising filmmakers at SXSW, Hot Docs, IFP, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Los Angeles Film Festival, and The New York Foundation for the Arts.
