This VUCAVU OUTREACH presentation will be led by Jacquelyn
Hébert, VUCAVU’s Community and Program Manager, and is intended for artists and filmmakers of all kinds who are interested in learning more about distribution options for their films and videos. During the session, Jacquelyn will discuss what VUCAVU.com is, who our partners are, what a distributor does and what we offer artists. This presentation includes an overview of a few other View-On-Demand (VOD) platforms and a discussion about how digital tools can be used to help promote an artists’ practice. We will also explore how VUCAVU
can be used as a curatorial, research, and educational tool and what changes are on the horizon as we work to expand the platform’s usage and its functionalities.
