Plan Your Event

Event planning may look different for different people, though it usually involves these steps:

  • Identify goals for your screening
  • Decide on date, time, and location for your event
  • Decide on your event format and choose a facilitator, moderator, panelists, etc.
  • Promote your screening
  • Execute your screening

Things to Consider

Please make sure your screening is accessible for your audience. If you are having an in-person screening, make sure the venue is wheelchair accessible. You may also consider having a place for nursing mothers to breastfeed. Regardless of if your screening is virtual or in-person, you may also consider having the captions on for the film, and/or language or deaf translation for the film and any Q&As or discussions that follows.

Screening Hints

  • You can share the link individually with each of your audience members to watch on their own time, or you can watch it all together.
    • If you are screening virtually, you can download the film and show it via Zoom Advanced Video Share.
    • If you are screening in person, you can play the film on your computer, then attach your computer to the screening device via an HDMI cord, airplay, chromecast, etc.
