In this lecture Mirjam Wiekenkamp will share her tips, tricks and a sneak peek into the work of a PR agent in the AV industry. Because what is it a publicist exactly does? What can you expect from them? How can they help exactly? And isn't that expensive?By having a look at a few case studies, we will answer questions such as: How do you reach your audience? How do you reach out to and handle press? How do you create a social impact with your film? How can you position yourself and your film within the industry? And isn’t that all very expensive?
“When you go to a film school, nobody tells you about the work a publicist does. When the moment comes that your film has been selected for a festival, the question often arises whether or not one should get a publicist. So should you get one? Many people don’t know the added value of a publicist, or what to expect from them. Engaging a publicist from an early stage on can help you position your film clearly, making sure to communicate a clear and unique message. I want to make filmmakers aware of the opportunity people in my profession can offer them.” - Mirjam Wiekenkamp
