16:30-17:30 Thursday 23.03, Social Cinema, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

In the context of a growing global demand for commercial, smooth nonfiction stories – what role can major public institutions and philanthropic organisations play in the support of independent artistic practice? Is there a way to overcome issue silos of various nonprofits and develop broad, inclusive structures (and budgets) that would enable filmmakers to systematically contribute to civil society’s work and benefit from its resources?
