I just ordered a DVD. When if gets here we can all watch it at our next

a good place?

>glad you want to do a screening. Here are a few things you can do before
>we send you a copy of the film....
>1. identify a day and location. (make this far enough in advance so that we

>your ducks in order, and we can post it to our website to help with
>2. identify a co-sponsoring group (and contact). This can be an affiliated

>When you can send us these two items of info (along with a mailing address
>(to diyscreenings at ithefilm.com) we will send out the dvd's and a link to

>After the screening we encourage you to go here:
>And leave your thoughts and reply to others who have posted theirs.
>The situation with money is this. We expect that areas that can ask for a

>no one is turned away for lack of funds. The money you send back to us goes

>a fundraiser for the host organizations that is great and encouraged- in
>which case we would ask for a 50/50 split- but in all cases we are pretty
>flexible. We just want the program to pay for itself in the long run.
>screenings like these self supporting means they are sustainable over the
>long run without asking for grants and we feel that is a pretty radical
>Thanks so much, and let me know if you have any more questions.
