Share this post


For Small Charity Week 2023 The Clare Foundation is delighted to present a webinar on charity film-making. This is the first of two sessions, with a second workshop being a more practical guide to creating film content.

Introduction to the planning and launch of your film for charities, hosted by Laura Balerdi from HelpFilm, is aimed at communications and digital specialists working or volunteering for a charity.

What to expect

This workshop will explore the key ingredients needed when planning a short film. Using case study examples of films that HelpFilm have been a part of; we will examine the successes and the ‘what not to do’s’ when planning, producing and launching a film digitally.

The workshop is designed for those new to film campaigns or those who are just starting out. It will help those wishing to get started on the planning of their film and don’t know how to begin. It will also help answer questions you may have about how best to improve engagement online before, during and after the film launch so that the film’s impact continues for months and years to come.

Places are free but need to be booked in advance via our Eventbrite page here. We advise booking early to avoid disappointment.
