Ten years of Media That Matters. Time to celebrate. Ready to innovate.

On June 3, the day after the NYC premiere of the tenth annual Media That Matters collection, Arts Engine will host a free, day-long series of conversations for filmmakers, activists and educators who are working to harness the
power of media to enact change.

Join Arts Engine staff, Pat Aufderheide, Abigail Disney, MTM filmmakers past and present and many more for an exciting day of provocative
conversation and practical strategies for impact

This won't be a re-hashing of the same old tips (set up a Twitter account!) and laments (documentary distribution is in crisis!).

Instead, we'll take up targeted questions about the state of social issue media like: What are the advantages and drawbacks of short films vs. long format
media in spurring audiences to action? What does it mean to be a
fast-acting filmmaker when it comes to social change media? Do you
sacrifice craft to effect change quickly? And how do you inspire
students to connect media to their own lives and realize their potential
as changemakers?

The day will be organized into three interactive 75-minute sessions. You can sign up for one or for all three. Since this event is designed to
be a series of intimate conversations, space isextremely limited. While we are able to offer
these conversations at no cost to participants, youmust register in advance. You
can register and find detailed descriptions of the sessions and
panelists here.

We hope to see you there!

This event is made possible by the Fledgling Fund.

For those of you not in the NYC area next week, you can still participate! Media That Matters (MTM) will be launching the films online at 6pm EST on June 2nd. In addition to this, we will also be streaming the Q&A with the filmmakers following the films (9:30pm EST) as well as the MTM: IMPACT workshop taking place on June 3rd at 3pm EST. If you can't tune in to the live stream, these videos will be available from the same links immediately following the events.

As a part of the 10th Anniversary ongoing celebration, MTM is taking the festival to the road and screening in 10 cities worldwide (NYC, Minneapolis, London, Denver, Miami, San Francisco, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Evanston IL, Portland OR). These screenings will be hosted by local organizations and may include opportunities to meet the filmmakers in your city! To find out when a screening will be taking place near you, stayed tuned to the Media That Matters website. You'll also want to look out for the discussion guide for this year's collection (scheduled release date of Fall 2010).
