Host Your Own Virtual Movie Night in 5 Steps!
1. PLAN YOUR EVENT
Choose whether the event will be live or on-demand.
Pick a date & time. Consider holidays and other events. Check analytics to see when your community is online or most likely to attend.
Choose where you want to host - where will the content be watched? Facebook Groups, Facebook Live and Zoom are all great options.
Will access to the film screening watch party be gated or free?
2. PURCHASE A SCREENING KIT
Purchase a Screening License Kit based on the estimated size of your audience, and the format needed.
For virtual and socially-distanced + outside + safe events, purchase based on your best guess and upgrade later if needed. If you’d like to do a virtual Q&A with a filmmaker, email us about a date and time, and purchase that as well.
The Kits include a Download of the Film File, a Screening + Q&A Guide, as well as marketing and promotional materials to promote your event.
3. PROMOTE YOUR EVENT
How will you promote the event? (Newsletter + Facebook Events & Pages)
Do you plan to work with another person, partner or company?
Consider inviting an inspiring woman or noteworthy speaker from your community.
Use social media! Create a Facebook event. Create an event countdown in Instagram Stories. Consider listing your event on sites like Eventbrite and in other places your audience will come across them. Use a custom #EventHashtag!
E-mail us and we'd be happy to share your event information on TGP's social media!
4. TEST YOUR TECH
Run through your stream or screening set up prior to the event.
Make sure your computer or device is plugged in while hosting.
Coordinate with any partners or event collaborators to run through their tech.
5. HAVE FUN + ENJOY THE FILM!
Engage with your audience during the film in the chat or comments.
Consider hosting a moderated Q&A after the film. Ask your audience to submit questions in the chat or comment section! You can also invite the filmmaker to speak at your event.
Stay in touch with your viewers! Form friendships and build community. Create a group or exchange contact info for future inspiring events. #TheGoddessProject
