Duration
90’

How do you make your film stand out from the crowd? and another, no less important question — how can you find and reach your target audience?  

During this workshop, our guest Mirjam Wiekenkamp (a PR specialist with over 15 years of experience) will walk you through the different steps of a PR and marketing campaign and communications strategies in conversation with moderator Anastasia Klysakova (who has been a marketing specialist for over 10 years for various business, social and cultural projects). 

Mirjam will show you how to make some efficient NOISE for your film to help you reach your goals.
