Together Films work with filmmakers to craft Impact Distribution Campaigns to increase both their social impact, audience reach and revenue potential. Since the industry fall-out from COVID-19, Together Films have been leading the way in pivoting to online digital platforms for film screenings and working alongside various organisations to troubleshoot the issues they are facing. They also provide support for festivals including DOC NYC and HRWFF (London & NYC) to provide marketing & partnership support.
Together Films have worked on titles such as For Sama (Channel 4), The Hunting Ground (CNN), Unrest (Netflix) and consult on around 200 different films each year.
