Film Screening Suggestions
Where to Screen
On campus, you could use cafeterias, classrooms, or auditoriums. Off campus, consider screening at community centers, private homes, or renting out a small theater. For in-person screenings, to ensure that you have the legal permissions to screen the film, check if your library has access to the movie or documentary and that it can be screened, or apply for a project grant to cover the cost of a screening fee. You can also screen films virtually through Netflix, Hulu, Disney and HBO websites using Teleparty, TwoSeven for other streaming services, or another online connection tool and host an online discussion via Zoom afterward.
Get Viewers Involved
Organize brief discussions of the topic of the film before and after screening. Prepare a list of questions beforehand to help guide the discussion.
These film and documentary suggestions, along with wide range of viewpoints contained herein, do not necessarily represent the views of Animal Legal Defense Fund.
