To the community,
I am posting this in hopes of starting a great partnership between my upcoming feature documentary The Peace Agency and organizations that are committed to empowering women and ending conflict.
The Peace Agency is about a grassroots women’s school for peace and equality in the conflict zone of Poso, Indonesia. Featured in the film is Lian Gogali, the founder of the school, who faces seemingly insurmountable professional and personal struggles (TRAILER: http://vimeo.com/27524256).
I am certain there are organizations or individuals that this film could have a mutually beneficial relationship with, which would further the work of your organization through the story of this film. My idea is to work collaboratively to maximize our resources. Together we can create more impact on the issues which we fight for. Spotted Frog Productions is looking for a strategic outcome with this film. We want the audience to take the lessons from this film and apply them to their own community and lives. We envision men and women contributing to their communities' peace process and gender empowerment, wherever they may be from. If this film embodies the vision of your organization in an emotional and compelling story, it could ignite action and change in viewers. This film could be a direct help to the movement which you and your organization are a part of. With this partnership, it would be easy to embed this into your reach which would make is easy to get it to the target audiences that you think would like this.
Our partnership could include: -
-Links to each others websites under “Take action”
-Filmmaker and organization will have social media coverage about each other.
-Your organization will list and promote upcoming local screenings to target audiences.
-Discussion of each other during press events
-You would be provided with free screening kits and copies of the film to show wherever you all want to.
Spotted Frog Productions is committed to inspiring social change through this film, and if your organization could provide the perfect partnership to bring about direct action from our audiences, please contact me immediately!
If you are interested, we will send a proposal and overview of the film, which is currently in production and is expected to be completed by Spring 2012. Creating strategic partnerships now is crucial to the successful completion, marketing, and audience outreach campaign that will take place. I look forward to hearing from you all and creating a mutually beneficial relationship that will bring the message and lessons of the film into the direct social action your organization fosters.
PS--It's more than a movie, it's a movement!
