We’re excited that you’ve chosen to use this movie as a tool to inspire & spark discussion in your community and hope that the events will be a positive & meaningful experience for all those involved.
Here’s a run-down on all the things we’ve learned from hosting our own events, along with a brief explanation of How It Works.
3 Main Steps to Host a Screen & Green Event:
1) Check out local screening venues* & pick a date/time.
*Think creatively = theaters, libraries, community centers, churches, back yards, sides of barns/buildings!
2) Fill out our application page to obtain a screening license to make it official.
Once your event has been approved, you can create promotional materials—download our easy to use, customizable flyer.
3) Identify some friends or collaborators* who will help plan & promote the event.
Share a meal together to go over ideas. Tell all your family & friends about the event and invite them to attend.
*A lively mix is good—a chef, a farmer, a local co-op/retail storeowner, a photographer, a town council-member or mayor.
We are an independent, grassroots production. So, unlike Hollywood studios who finance films and huge advertising budgets, the license fee is the one solid way we can try to recuperate our costs and keep this little bean sprout of a movement up and sprouting, plus it’d be nice to be nice to feed the director from time to time.
When you fill out the screening license and pay the appropriate fee you are purchasing the rights to screen the movie in accordance to the license you choose for your specific event.
For those hard-working individuals out there and grassroots organizers we feel your strive, drive & appreciate all your support!
