Check out Tracey Friesen‘s new book, Story Money Impact, which provides a guide for funders, media producers, and activists looking to use media to achieve social impact. It offers case studies of successful social issue films—CITIZENFOUR, Virunga, The Corporation, and more—as well as a guiding framework for creating compelling stories, securing funding, and setting impact goals. There are also handy worksheets to help plan and assess impact. DCS’s Jessica Clark provided editorial review for the book.

Last week, Jessica joined the Story Money Impact Conference virtually to speak with the international cohort of filmmakers about her work with Media Impact Funders, and the evolution of the Impact Pack.

Participants explore the Impact Pack at the Story Money Impact conference on Cortes Island.
