These community screenings is one of the ways that we reach out to the public and corporations is through community screenings. Host a community screening in your residential area, office or school and let the power of films enhance the understanding on environmental issues.
All you really need to host a good screening is a venue, projector and screen, and a good sound system. Leave the rest to us.
The duration of a community screening can range from one hour to two hours, and is definitely a fun way to engage your audience to learn more about environmental issues through films. To host a community screening, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with details such as venue, dates (if possible a few options), time, and expected number of people, and we will get back to you soonest to arrange for the screening.
