Once a film is complete, the dissemination phase is crucial for affecting change. This is where it all happens. We encourage organizations, groups, schools, communities, libraries, professional associations, institutions, faith groups, and service clubs to host screenings. The films generate discussion, motivate people to action, reveal hidden realities and make the issues accessible.
For the more recent films, we train film participants to become facilitators. They animate the film to a whole new level. SkyWorks provides hands-on training and ensures the individuals who live the issues are prepared to lead an audience of any size through a powerful workshop. It is important to note the facilitation experience for the film participants is an opportunity for them to reach through the despair, to speak honestly and directly to communities. For many, it is the first opportunity to tell their stories and take a broader look at their common experience.
People living through an issue have little opportunity to put the ‚Äúbig picture‚Äù together being so absorbed by the demands of everyday survival. Participating in the film and facilitating workshops is an opportunity to ask the bigger questions, to see that they are not alone, and that the solution is not just about survival but also about connecting with and inspiring others to be part of the change.
