On this page you can find quick and easy steps to book your screening of A Small Good Thing as well as frequently asked questions that will help make your event a success!
WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR BOOKING A SCREENING OF A SMALL GOOD THING?
We've outlined the steps on our "How To Host A Screening" page.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HOST A COMMUNITY SCREENING?
The screening licensing fees range in price depending on your type of event and starting at $39 plus shipping. Organizations screening the film are responsible for any costs associated with the local screening venue.
Below, you can learn more about how to defray the cost of hosting a screening.
CAN I PREVIEW THE FILM BEFORE PURCHASING A LICENSE?
If you're interested in organizing a community event, but would like to see A Small Good Thing in full before moving forward, we would be happy to share a digital screener with you. Please email Paula Kirk, at [email protected] for a private screening link.
WHAT DOES THE SCREENING LICENSE INCLUDE?
The screening license includes the one-time use of the A Small Good Thing DVD as well as our Screening Kit (an event planning guide, discussion guide, and promotional materials).
WHAT IF I WANT TO HOST MORE THAN ONE SCREENING?
If you would like to host multiple screenings in your community, you will need to purchase a license for each screening.
Educational Licenses are an exception to this policy. Educational Licenses cover as many free in-library screenings as you like and also allow the library to add the copy to their collection to loan out.
For any questions regarding multiple screenings please feel to contact us at [email protected].
HOW CAN I DEFRAY THE COST OF HOSTING A SCREENING?
Feel free to charge admission and/or accept donations at your event. We suggest organizations use the screening as a fundraiser to help launch innovation in their communities and local initiatives.
Partnering with other local organizations or groups can also help cover the costs while simultaneously creating and sustaining community around the film and the important topics that it covers.
CAN THE FILMMAKERS COME TO OUR SCREENING?
Due to demand, those involved in the film are not able to attend every screening; however, if you are able to cover speaker fees and travel costs, please contact us at [email protected] to discuss options.
CAN I PURCHASE A COPY OF THE FILM TO KEEP?
The film is not yet available for individual purchase -- our aim with this project is to bring communities together in reflection and discussion. We do have a Home Screening license, however, which is intended for smaller gatherings of friends and family.
To stay updated about future opportunities for individual purchase or when the film will be screened in your local area, sign up for our mailing list.
WHY SHOULD I REGISTER MY EVENT ON YOUR WEBSITE?
Registering your event is a wonderful sign of how A Small Good Thing is making its way into the world! By registering your event on our website, you help us keep track of how well the film is doing. If you are hosting a public screening, this feature also helps ensure that we give your event the attention it deserves in terms of publicity and promotion as the big day approaches.
This feature is also extremely beneficial to you as a host because it allows you to invite friends and family to the event and track RSVP’s.
If you are hosting a private screening, we would still appreciate it if you could book the event with us. Simply mark it as "unlisted" or "private" to keep it from appearing publicly on our website.
CAN I HOST A SCREENING OUTSIDE OF THE US?
As of now, the film is only available as a Region 1 DVD and is only compatible with players typically sold in the U.S., U.S. Territories, Canada, and Bermuda. We are happy to provide access to an online screening link for these cases though. Contact us at [email protected] with additional questions or to learn more.
