First-ever social impact evaluation of a film concludes funding The End of the Line was worth it

Why do so few funders support film making? This was the question I raised in a Latest from Alliance post last September, reflecting on my recent day at Good Pitch UK 2010, where eight documentary film makers ‘pitched’ films in various stages of production.

One answer to my question might be that it’s very hard to tell how much impact funding a film will have. BRITDOC Foundation’s recent publication of the first-ever social impact evaluation of a film, The End of the Line, about the extent and consequences of over-fishing, is a first step in addressing this problem.
