Event: Website and Social Media Essentials for Filmmakers
We’re holding a professional development session for filmmakers, media artists, and the general public on Thursday, March 30 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Find out what you need to know about social media and websites during our upcoming professional development session titled, “Does Anybody Even Go to Websites, and What are Impressions?” Darcy Heusel, Vice President of Audience Engagement and Impact at NEON, will lead a session on how filmmakers can use online platforms to drive audiences to their film and measure the success of their social media campaigns using analytic tools. She’ll also discuss how much filmmakers should spend on their film’s website or whether it’s necessary to build one at all. Attendees are encouraged to bring their burning social media and digital marketing questions to this session.
