SIE Case Studies

Case studies are a great way to connect with students and practitioners with in-depth analysis of issues related to social impact entertainment. Our case studies will serve as foundational research to establish best practices in SIE for the purpose of teaching and advancing the field.


The Skoll Center for SIE is working with Participant Media to produce one beta case study in the coming year.

Case studies currently under consideration are:

Spotlight – Academy Award-winning film with a focus on its social impact campaign on press freedom.

He Named Me Malala – Documentary film and global impact campaign with organizations promoting girls education.

3 ½ Bullets, Ten Seconds – Timely documentary film and extensive campaign about race and gun violence in America.

The Price of Free – Documentary film on Nobel Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi and his fights against child slavery.
