Powerful stories that make great things happen.

What we do

Some of our projects

About Screen Impact

We’re dedicated to the power of stories, and the change they can make happen. We work with non-fiction filmmakers at every stage of a film’s life, to find audiences for stories that need to be told.

It’s our job to get documentaries seen, maximise their impact and create career-building opportunities for filmmakers across all kinds of screens: Digital, Theatrical, Broadcast and Beyond.

In the rapidly changing world of distribution, we provide innovative strategies and partnerships tailored to the outcomes you want for your film.

As filmmakers ourselves, we understand this is a creative business that requires creative solutions. Tech savvy, socially aware, we love documentaries.

Impact

We design and implement campaigns that use your film to create lasting change. Through strategic partnerships with organisations working for positive change, your film can shift hearts and minds.

Distribution

We pair traditional releases with a cutting-edge approach to digital distribution. We work independently or in partnership with other distributors and broadcasters. We place your film where it can maximise audience and impact, from classrooms to community forums. We work consultatively with our filmmakers, to ensure the strategy fits your film and your goals.

Audience building

We will help you identify, build and sustain an audience from the earliest stages of your film’s life, and help you take them with you to your next film too. We nurture audiences through grassroots and digital marketing in tandem with more traditional marketing strategies.
