Shine Global co-Founder and Executive Director Susan MacLaury will be speaking at NYU on Wednesday April 10th on a panel entitled “Film for Social Change.” The Spring 2013 Heyman Center Speaker Series showcases national leaders at the cutting edge of philanthropy/advocacy innovation. The series focuses on how social, technological and global trends are dramatically reshaping the giving sector, with each segment offering an update on the latest developments in the field and a concrete list of practical takeaways for implementation, along with an emphasis on best practices.
The panel will offer an exclusive, sneak-peek showing of the 2013 Nonprofit Video Award-winners — to be announced nationally a week after this panel —and a fast-paced talk/screening by Susan and other award-winning cause filmmakers about their work: what they do, how they do it, and how you can do it, too. Joining Susan as panelists are Lee Hirsch, the filmmaker who made the award-winning Bully, a documentary about school bullying; Mark Horvath, the founder and videographer behind InvisiblePeople.tv; and Michael Hoffman, the founder and CEO of See3 Communications, which co-organizes the annual Do-Gooder Nonprofit Video Awards with YouTube, Cisco, and the Case Foundation. Marcia Stepanek, who teaches social media strategy and cause video in the NYU Master’s program, will be moderating.
The session will be free and open to the public but an RSVP is required as seating is limited.
