2012 Producers Institute Public Conference Day

Event Date: 
Sat, 10/13/2012 - 10:00am - 5:00pm

Since 2007, the Producers Institute for New Media Technologies has helped independent producers and documentary filmmakers deepen and expand the impact of their socially relevant filmmaking by connecting them with technologists, data visualization experts, interaction designers, social media strategists, installation artists, developers, and computer programmers to create interactive platforms, new models of participatory media and data-driven tools to enable social change movements on the ground.

Please join us for the Producers Institute for New Media Technologies Public Conference Day, featuring panel discussions and presentations on emerging tools and platforms that are changing the face of filmmaking and empowering social change movements around the world.
