About Together Films

The film strategists

Behind the scenes of every successful film is a great producer and a great distribution strategy. Ever wondered how to get your film seen by the right people? Confused by the myriad of distribution options available today? Not sure who your target audience really is or where to find them? Together Films can help you answer these questions and more.

Together Films was originally set up in 2013 by Sarah Mosses with Elizabeth Benjamin. We put together our joint experience, gained at the likes of BRITDOC and the BFI to support independent filmmakers release their films. Sarah’s background in film strategy and campaigns, plus Elizabeth’s extensive PR work. Originally we ran campaigns for films such as Leave To Remain and The Possibilities Are Endless. Then we realised we could help more filmmakers by giving the advice and frameworks they needed to go off and do it themselves. Encouraging and inspiring a range of filmmakers to explore hybrid distirbution models and take control of their screening campaigns.

In 2016 Sarah relaunched Together Films as a full time consultancy, offering her expertise and guidance to a range of filmmakers and institutions. Take a look through the new website and get in touch if you would like to find out more details about how we can help you.

About Sarah Mosses

I love to connect people

That’s why I called this company Together Films. A film is not made in isolation; you need a team of experienced people around you, and partnerships with the right organisations to reach your audience. Pitch me your film, and I’ll come back to you with immediate, practical actions you can take to ramp up your impact distribution campaign.

I previously worked at BRITDOC, a leading documentary film funder, where I engaged partners for the European Good Pitch and set up their distribution division BRITDOC Films. We came up with a new title for my role when I was the Impact Producer on films such as Ping Pong (which was nominated for a Screen Marketing and Distribution Award) and One Mile Awaycombining social campaign strategy and distribution delivery. Working at BRITDOC was a fantastic incubator for allowing creative thinking around funding and distribution, which became the base of my consultancy work.

I see my role now as a strategist, making sure that my clients have the insight to craft effective funding and distribution campaigns based on their films potential. I keep my ear to the ground for new platform launches, funding opportunities, innovative marketing campaigns and much more. I meet regularly with funders and distributors, attend key markets, read the trades and geek out so that you don’t have to. I work with over 200 filmmakers each year through various one-on-ones, labs and workshops, which means I’m always up to date on changes in the industry and sharing valuable insight on how others in the sector are achieving success.

The first person I recommend

Sarah is one of the UK's foremost experts in story development, marketing, outreach and overall documentary funding, distribution and exhibition strategies. She knows it all, and her connections and specialised thinking means she's always the first person I recommend when documentary makers need an expert in reaching the widest audience possible. Some consultants can help on parts of the journey from idea to audience; she can do it all, and do it brilliantly.

Experience is crucial

Doc/Fest has been inspired to have Sarah Mosses as a key industry voice at the Festival, both as a speaker in our conference programme, and as a nurturing mentor for filmmakers both at the Festival in the MeetMarket and as part of our year round training activities. Sarah’s experience is crucial for filmmakers who want to have social impact, audience reach and revenue potential when bringing their films to the international market.

Understanding independent distribution

We consulted Sarah Mosses when we were planning the distribution of The Divide. It was the insights from these meetings which helped us make a successful application to the BFI New Models Distribution Fund. She has a sharp understanding of the continually changing shape of independent distribution.

Hugely beneficial support

We were delighted that Sarah agreed to meet with this year’s BAFTA Guru Pros, a group of young industry practitioners selected to take part in bespoke workshops and roundtable discussions aimed at supporting their development in the industry. Sarah’s knowledge of not only the documentary landscape but the industry as a whole was hugely beneficial to our participants and the feedback from the Guru Pros has been overwhelmingly positive.
