Elevate Screenings Guide

Jordan P. Kelley, Content Director, Brand Storytelling

In order to fully educate ourselves on the craft of brand storytelling, we must familiarize ourselves with the latest and greatest examples of brand-funded content and entertainment being produced. And while so much of Elevate is about rolling up our sleeves and getting into the metaphorical mud, it is important to take in great examples of brand-funded work so that we can continue to keep our eye on the brand storytelling community's collective north star: a great finished product. As such, we're thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a slate of screenings at this year's Elevate gathering that we feel exemplifies the purpose and power brand films can have.

Here's a closer look at what will be screened at Elevate 2023:
