We’re at Sundance!January 22, 2013 by Sally Farhat Kassab
Once again, the Skoll Foundation is at the Sundance Film Festival in force!
“Storytelling is critical for achieving change at scale, and nowhere can you find more and better storytellers than at Sundance,” says Sandy Herz, our director of strategic alliances.
Through our Stories of Change partnership, Skoll entrepreneurs Landesa, Injaz, GoodWeave and FairTrade USA are now exploring how narrative storytelling and strategic use of film can help them scale their impact.
Media advisors working with the Skoll awardees at Sundance include Kirsten Johnson, Cori Stern, Patrick Creadon and Mona Eldaief.
So what is the film we’re featuring above? That’s the Skoll-supported “Girl Rising,” which features three Skoll Award recipient organizations: Room to Read, Partners in Health and (in the campaign but not the film) Pratham USA. The film comes out in theaters on March 7. Yesterday, we attended the “Girl Rising” panel and evening event at Sundance.
