Never been able to get to a screening? Or maybe there’s not been an event in your city. Then it’s time you thought about running a screening event!
Screening events can be fun and seeing Serenity with Browncoats, both new and veteran, is an amazing experience.
The beauty about screenings is they vary in size depending on how big you want your event to be, from things like small screening rooms for 20 people at a local bar to big events at theatres with a capacity for 300 and everything in between.
In a way, taking on a screening event is a lot like Firefly. To start you need to recruit a trusty crew!
Finding the right venue can be the tricky part but with a bit of research and some thinking outside the box you can find the perfect one. It also helps to mention that it’s a charity event when negotiating and we provide a fact sheet to help explain what Can’t Stop the Serenity is.
Some past venues have included:
- Independent cinemas
- College theatres or lecture halls
- High school auditorium or gym
- Bars with screening capabilities
- Library theatrettes
In addition to showing Serenity there’s usually the option of screening other content we acquire the rights for all CSTS events to show.
There’s a wealth of information covering all aspects of event planning to get you started here.
Most importantly you won’t be doing it alone.
Every organiser receives access to our forums where they can chat and get advice, support and ideas from other organisers and the global team. Global also assists with promoting your event across our social media platforms.
Each screening event has access to a sponsor pack so you have some great loot to start building raffle and prize packs to raise more money for Equality Now .
And with up to 25% available for you to donate to other charities, you can do good locally as well as globally!
