FWD-Doc in association with the BFI Doc Society Fund present: The FWD-Doc Engagement Pack
This downloadable PDF contains resources aimed at filmmakers, commissioners, funders, buyers, decision-makers, business affairs and exhibitors, and includes templates for use across the industry. The FWD-Doc Engagement Pack focuses on the processes of collaboration and audience engagement in documentary filmmaking, particularly with a view to social impact.
This disabled-led resource offers empowering and practical information and best practice examples, focused on the crucial topic of engagement: engagement with disabled colleagues and expertise, and engagement with audiences.
They aspire to a filmmaking community that invests in authentic, respectful and equitable collaboration with D/deaf and disabled film professionals. Additionally, they know that making and releasing documentary films often involves direct engagement with audiences and stakeholders. This Pack aims to help make all of these processes more inclusive and equitable.
They suggest using it with the FWDDoc Toolkit, which was created in association with Doc Society and supported by Netflix. The Toolkit details effective production and representation methodologies, and the ideas and resources within it complement those in this Engagement Pack.Download the engagement pack
