Co-Founder DOC NYC Festival & Pure Nonfiction Podcast
I’ve worked with Together Films at DOC NYC and Pure Nonfiction and they always deliver first rate insights.
I’m consistently impressed with how they use data to drive decision making and stay alert to ever changing shifts in audience engagement.
Among consultants in this field, they are among the best investments I’ve made.
For filmmakers and brands – delivering purpose and profit.
We work with filmmakers and brands to create bespoke Impact Distribution Strategies that aim to balance purpose & profit. Each proposal is customized to the needs of the team, their current stage, and fundraising needs (if required). This work may include elements such as:
- Stakeholder meetings
- Issue context research
- Partnership research & engagement
- Hosting Brainstrust Meetings
- Funding Presentions & Pitch Decks
- Research & Target funders
Think of it like the pre-production phase for your film’s distribution and marketing plan – what are your objectives, what are your goals, and when do you want to achieve them? Are you seeking support with your goals and require strategy support? We have 3 packages to choose from.
We worked with Together Films on the launch of the Battleground Impact Distribution Campaign and accomplished a lot in a short period of time.
Following our World Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival in June 2022, we quickly coordinated several teams to implement a large-scale impact campaign, timed to launch in advance of the midterm elections, when reproductive rights would be on the ballot. There was a lot to do to achieve our goals within the deadline and Sarah and her team helped us navigate our theatrical release plan, supported additional fundraising efforts from aligned donors, and project-managed a range of preview screenings in Washington DC & LA to engage partners, garner additional stakeholders and launch the campaign, as well as social media initiatives.
IMPACT SCREENINGS & eVENTS
We deliver extensive impact campaigns and one-off events on behalf of our film teams. This work will either be commissioned by the filmmaker, distributor and/or sales agent and may include such items as:
- Non-Theatrical Screening Tours
- High-level Policy & Influencer Events
- Virtual Event Production
- Digital Campaign Management
- Speaker/Panel Booking
- Impact Evaluation
Launching an impact campaign requires a lot of operational planning. You are usually working with multiple stakeholders, so what are the lines of communication? When working on multi-territory, multi-lingual campaigns, you might need assets translated into multiple languages. If the campaign hits off, you might be dealing with hundreds of screening requests.
Working alongside our technology team, we try to streamline these processes, with an efficient project management process, screening request forms, and automation.

Director, Army of Women
Producer, Army of Women
Together Films has been a wonderful and dedicated partner as we develop our impact strategy for our documentary An Army of Women.
We have been fortunate enough to begin thinking about impact at an early stage of the film, and Sarah and her talented team have helped us navigate and position our film for both impact and distribution, building on their vast network within the documentary space.
We feel lucky to get to work with such a thoughtful, forward-thinking, and strategic team, and look forward to bringing the film to the world with their help.
We manage marketing campaigns on behalf of filmmakers, film festivals, and brand clients, which may include services such as:
- Social Media Management
- Graphic Design
- Newsletter & Database Management
- SEO & Website Updates
- Marketing Partnership Engagement
A key part of our work is building strong relationships with a range of impact partners & influencers. We have a huge database of partners tagged by issue area and can rapidly mobilize support around campaigns.
We work with our campaign partners in multiple ways:
- Expert advice – inviting partners to contribute key information to campaign objectives and resources.
- Social Media Marketing – a mutually beneficial relationship where the film and partner share information about key campaign updates.
- Speaking opportunities – to discuss their work following impact screenings of each film.
- Screening hosts – sharing the film with their networks to increase audience reach and impact.
- And much more…
Director, Stranger At The Gate
We engaged Together Films late in our campaign cycle to provide a last push to ensure that our film was in front of voters ready for the Oscar nomination weekend. We were extremely impressed with the speed at which Sarah and her team jumped into action, supporting our on-the-ground needs in London & Europe to ensure our US production was being discussed in the right rooms.
They helped source campaign materials, sent out communications to their wide networks, and drafted social media activations for our lead supporters including Malala. We are grateful for their support and would highly recommend them to anyone navigating the awards process next season.
Film FESTIVAL marketing
We provide marketing, technology, partnership, and event management services to a range of brilliant film festivals.
Whether you’re seeking guidance on funding and sponsorship opportunities, elevating your industry offering, or looking to engage new audiences, Together Films can provide valuable insight with our film festival campaign management experience.
Our marketing team has worked on numerous editions of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival for both its London and New York festivals and the Athena Film Festival in New York.
Sarah Mosses and John-Paul Pierrot, joined the Sheffield DocFest team as the marketing and audiences leads for its 29th edition in 2022. We managed all branding and marketing activation across the public and industry programmes by developing the creative concepts of the festival as it returned to Sheffield venues for the first time since 2019. We redeveloped all publications including the festival brochure and industry guide and led on all AV materials including the trailer.
Our team, led by Sarah Mosses, helped shape the inaugural industry programme at the 2022 UK edition of the prestigious film festival, Sundance Film Festival: London.
In 2018 and 2019, we managed digital marketing and partnership engagement for DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary film festival.

Co-Founder Earthrise Studio
The strategy advice that we received from Together Films was transformational in terms of how we saw the growth opportunities for Earthrise Studio. Sarah helped to layout potential new content verticals we could be delivering, and how to scale our operations in a sustainable way.
As a new company, the strategic thinking from Together Films informed the launch of our new website and opened our eyes to new ways of monetizing the business. We are forever grateful to Sarah and the team for providing guidance during our formational years so that Earthrise can continue to deliver climate communications that inspire, inform, and educates the exciting community of new climate leaders that we are building.
