  1. WHAT DOES HOSTING A SCREENING ENTAIL?

    You secure a venue and design an event that works best for your community — members, nonprofit, school, library, union hall, university, etc. Some hosts have a reception before or after their event, have a panel discussion afterward, and sometimes bring the filmmaker to speak.

    You’ll receive the Councilwoman Host Screening Kit, which includes:

    • The Councilwoman documentary on DVD, BluRay, or private link.

    • Digital Host Screening Kit with an event planning checklist with best practices on planning your event and a guide to facilitate conversations after the film.

    • Promotion Kit with social media graphics, a press kit, photos to share, and more to help you promote your event.

    • A listing of on our website's event page and Facebook page, if your event is open to the public.

    • A license to screen the film, for a limited, non-broadcast, public or private exhibition.

  2. IS THERE A FEE?

    Yes, it varies depending on how many times you want to screen the film, what type of institution you are (i.e. an individual who wants to screen it once versus a university that wants to use it for multiple events, etc.), if you would like to bring the director to speak, and if you decide to have a disc or link to the film. Fill out this form and you will receive more information that’s specific to your needs. All fees go to supporting the film’s impact campaign.

  3. WHERE CAN I HOST MY EVENT?

    You can host your event at an office, movie theater, conference, library, community space, or even your living room. The venue is entirely up to you!

  4. What technology do I need to host an event?

    When you purchase your screening license, we either mail you a DVD or BluRay disc of Councilwoman, or send you a private link to the film. The only technology you need to host your event is a screen to show the film, speakers to hear the audio, and if you chose a disc, a DVD or BluRay player.
