In 2004 Broderick launched Films to See Before You Vote, harnessing the power of film to impact the US presidential election. He is a graduate of Brown University, Cambridge University, and Yale Law School. Now focused on the revolution in film distribution, Broderick gives keynotes and presentations internationally, most recently at Cannes, Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Brisbane, New York, and Los Angeles.
