  17. 17. Social media is good for disseminating “share- able” content and staying in touch with your audience, but its not the end-all-be-all of audience engagement. In our case, much of the deep engagement with our platform is happening in classrooms and community meetings – and doesn’t always show up on social media. Define how you want audience to engage with your project. Social media may be just one part of a larger strategy. LUISA DANTAS BRAZILIAN-AMERICAN FILMMAKER ‘ ’
