Community Screenings FAQ
During the release of the first film, organizers and activists booked theatres, threw watch parties, panels, and discussions to strategize ways to take action. The COVID-19 pandemic has made this a little trickier, but now we have a plan! As a host of one-screening or a series, you can be part of our #1000 Screenings movement. We are launching a Solidarity Series of virtual and IRL gatherings in public spaces to take back the commons!
Community Screenings How-To
Yes, one-time screenings are available for organizations!
This provides you with a unique login to the film that you can share with your participants. There is a minimum $250 fee (for up to 100 viewers) and scales up depending on your audience and needs. Filmmakers may be available for Q&As for a speaker fee. If you are interested, please fill out this form and we will get back to you ASAP.
How do we access the film?
Once a screening is booked, you will receive a unique login and a (48 hr) window where the film will be available for your audience to view.
You are responsible for your own ticketing, for now!*
Eventbrite is very user friendly, and if you are live streaming a panel or discussion, you can embed the YouTube and Zoom links into Eventbrite so that your participants can get reminders.
* We are building our own version of a ticketing platform and are launching it very soon. Imagine if Eventbrite was on a mission! We are! #1000 Screenings.
How does my group watch the film together?
If you want people to watch the film at a specific time together, include a schedule of events in your event description.
If you are hosting a panel and want people to watch the film at a specific time together, a good idea to make sure people do that is to do a live opening introduction to the film, watch the film, and then gather people again for the discussion. For example:
1:00pm – Opening remarks
1:10pm – Watch the film!
3:00pm – Discussion/panel
4:00pm – Closing
Live streaming a panel
There are lots of options out there now! Zoom makes it pretty easy if you are “beaming” to one platform (i.e. YouTube of Facebook). If you want to stream to several platforms and accounts, an easy to use platform is Streamyard. There are fees attached to this (around $30 CAD/month), but it’s easy to use and customizable for your event.
