Filmmakers and Social Media

Most film watchers are focused on the top grossing films of the year from major studios such as Disney, Paramount, Universal etc. However each year hundreds of films are produced which are of high quality and need to find their niche audience. These include feature films, short films and documentaries.

The filmmakers are finding new ways to use tools such as facebook, twitter, youtube, internet television, and mobile content distribution to create awareness of their films.

Over the next few months, MediaMensch will be exploring this subject both on its blog and on its mediamensch radio show, eventually with a goal of turning this into a how-to use social media book for filmmakers.

If you have an interesting story about social media and film, please contact us at and put the subject title as "Blog - filmmakers"
