VIRTUAL CINEMA & SCREENINGS

VIRTUAL SCREENING EVENTS

With opportunities to come together as a community halted due to the pandemic, virtual screenings have become the standard for hosting film events. To screen a film online for a group requires a public performance license. Our film’s distributor, Cinema Libre Studio (CLS), has crafted three programs for organizations and non-profits to use for community events or fundraising.

TELL MY STORY has a runtime of 85 minutes. Closed captioning is available.

BASIC SCREENING- $199.00

This easy-to-execute package is our most streamlined offering. Designed for those who are already an expert on running video conferences through Zoom or Google Hangouts, this no-frills option is designed for special interest groups, Facebook communities, and small organizations looking to host a straightforward virtual screening while orchestrating your own conversation after. This option includes the following:

•Public Performance Rights (i.e. screening license) for up to 150 guests.
•A private digital viewing link will be made available for 24 hours for guests to view. The film starts when the guests go to the link and press play – it is not a synchronized start.
•The film would be available in that window to guests based outside the U.S.
•Cut-and-paste copy to share with your group to explain screening instructions.
•A 25% off discount on the DVD offered to your guests.
•You may solicit donations to defray the cost of a license through your own mechanisms.
If you’d like your group to discuss the film afterwards, we suggest you schedule a post-screening discussion via video conference of your choice to transpire immediately or the day after the 24-hour screening window.

FUNDRAISER PACKAGE – $399.00

Designed for non-profit organizations with a small budget who would like to host a virtual screening event and know their supporters would make donations to cover cost—but still need some help with the ticketing/screening technology. This option allows for a private ticketed screening + donations (or donations only) to be used as a fundraising event for your organization with your group handling the post-screening video conference discussion. This package is ideal for non-profits or groups with robust Facebook communities. This option includes the following:

•Public Performance Rights (i.e. screening license) for up to 200 guests.
•A customized Eventbrite page (set up by CLS team) with:
•All Ticket sale proceeds (minus platform fees) to go direct to your organization allowing for recoupment of the license fee.
•All donation proceeds will go directly to your organization (minus platform fees).
•Event registration.
•An easy-to-navigate landing page with the film’s trailer, a description of the film, your logo and url, a short message from the organizer about the event and details (including link) about the post-screening video conference (should you choose.)
•The video player will “go live” at the agreed time for 48 hours for guests to view. The film starts when the guests go to the link and press play — it is not a synchronized start.
•Automated reminders from Eventbrite sent to guests.
NOTE: an Eventbrite account for each guest will be required.
•The film will also be available in that 48 hour window to guests outside the U.S.
•Cut-and-paste copy to share with your group to explain virtual screening instructions.
•A 25% off discount on the DVD offered to your guests.
•CLS will provide the list of guest attendees (email list) within 5 days of the event.
•If you’d like to plan for a post screening discussion at a specific date and time, we will embed a link /video conference details into the Eventbrite page.
