Want to hold your own Screening? Get in touch!
The most important thing is simply to raise awareness of these issues. One of the easiest ways to do that is to hold your own screening of the movie. Host for four people or four hundred — audience size doesn't matter, as long as there's an audience.
Host the Director
If you are interested in booking the filmmaker for a speaking engagement — to present the film with a Q&A, or to be a guest lecturer at your school, union, or religious institution, etc, — please contact the director, Matt Pillischer, at firstname.lastname@example.org for a price list and details."
You don't need to book the director to host a discussion. There are several resources, including lectures and panel discussions, that you can show in addition to the movie, or as follow up events focused on discussion.
