By definition, movies have an enormous social impact, whether they are pure entertainment or take on a socially relevant issue. In helping to define the fabric of our culture, do filmmakers have a responsibility to address social issues? By focusing deeply on one particular subject, can filmmakers bring to the forefront troubled issues that the general media is unable to highlight, thus filling up the gap where journalism used to be? Or are movies that matter just good films? Our panel of acclaimed documentary and narrative filmmakers will explore the impetus, the process and the impact of movies that matter on our world.

More and more filmmakers are attracted to the documentary realm, telling challenging political and social stories that the general media left behind or delving into personal situations that reveal the human condition in its glory and its darkest moments. With the constant growth of documentary production in the U.S. and all around the world, the question often comes up: are these films viable commercially? Who and where is the audience? And do these films make the kind of impact the filmmakers are hoping for? Five years after the meteoric success of Fahrenheit 9/11, are the documentaries holding their own, or do they need a mega-hit doc every year to perpetuate the perception of them being financially lucrative? This panel of documentary filmmakers and experts will discuss today's state of documentary filmmaking and explore new creative ways for a film to succeed in a tight marketplace, with an eye towards its future growth.
