Together Films has announced two new strategic hires as Founder and CEO, Sarah Mosses, prepares for maternity leave.
Caitlin Boyle is joining Together Films part-time as the new Interim Director of Impact. Starting in February, Caitlin will support Together Films’ strategy clients and give motivational project management to Together’s live impact campaign team.
Caitlin Boyle has served for more than fifteen years as a leading advisor for independent film teams and distributors seeking to use film as a tool for social impact. She has guided more than 450 independent film teams, and her client work represents a diverse cross-section of distributors, broadcasters, brands and nonprofit organizations, including DOC NYC, Magnolia Pictures, NEON, WNET, The Sundance Institute, Patagonia, Timberland, the National Resource Defense Council, The Climate Pledge and more.
Interim Director of Impact
I am delighted to contribute my efforts and experiences to Together Films in this exciting moment of shift and building for the company.
As it expands its presence in the US, Together Films will strengthen and deepen the capacity of film teams to achieve their social impact ambitions – and I’m eager to support that work.
Also joining Together Films is Lyndsey Barratt as Director of Fundraising. Lyndsey is based in New York City and has over 15 years of experience in nonprofit fundraising for the arts and culture sector. Starting in February, Lyndsey joins Together Films part-time after having recently served as Grants Manager for the International Documentary Association.
With a primary focus on foundation and government support, Lyndsey has partnered with a diverse range of film, theater, dance, and arts advocacy organizations across the United States to secure over $20 million in grants for pilot programs, capital campaigns, and other pivotal moments of institutional growth. Lyndsey collaborates with artists and institutions to build strategic fundraising plans, foster funder relationships, and devise evaluation metrics, all to ensure each project meets its revenue and impact objectives.
Director of Fundraising
I am excited to join Together Films in a role where I can continue to collaborate with artists and amplify their stories.
As Together Films further expands its work in the US, I look forward to helping its impressive slate of clients execute campaigns and achieve their fundraising goals.
Alex Cook, Director of Operations at Together Films and former Head of Film at BAFTA, will steer the ship in Sarah’s absence along with the Head of Acquisitions, Sales and Distribution, Vicki Brown (previously Director of International Sales at Altitude) announcing their debut sales slate shortly.
The recruitment of Caitlin and Lyndsey represents a critical phase of growth for Together Films as the company continues to grow their presence in the US having recently worked on campaigns for Oscar nominated Stranger at the Gate (The New Yorker), the impactful reproductive rights film Battleground (Tribeca 2022) and Rachel Lears climate call to action film To The End (Sundance 2022).
Founder & CEO
When considering the next phase of Together Films’ expansion into the US market and going on maternity leave I couldn’t have hoped for two better humans to help the team continue on its trajectory to serve our clients and projects to achieve their goals. Caitlin has been a huge source of inspiration for me when starting Together Films, and Lyndsey and I have been close friends since her time at IDA. I’m delighted that two of my favourite people are coming on board at this time.
From an expansion perspective, we’ve been working with a range of US clients over the last few years and increasing the number of US based team members is critical to our future growth. We look forward to working with new US funding partners and projects over the coming year.
We also launched our Together Films 2022 Impact Report detailing some of the key achievements across our slate of film, festivals & industry clients.
