When can I hold my screening?
In most communities you can plan for any date after Nov. 1st, 2023. We are asking a few select locations to hold back until after the local film festival. If that applies to you, we will let you know when you reach out to us.
Is there a fee to host a screening?
The standard price for a license to screen the film publicly is at minimum $500 with a sliding scale for low resourced churches and organizations. Fees fund distribution; if you can donate more please do!
Do I need to rent a theater to host a screening?
You can host your screening anywhere. Some people rent theaters, others screen the film in churches or in local community spaces, and others host their screenings in their home.
Should I tell the press about my screening?
You will need to decide if it is a public or a private screening. If you want to open it to the public, we encourage you to reach out to your local press. You can also post it on social media, and share through local networks such as a public library or organizational newsletter.
Will you have templates I can use?
Yes, your ‘host a screening’ kit will include social media templates, a draft press release, and a digital version of our poster (as well as a printed copy!)
How does this relate to the celebrations of the 50th Anniversary?
The year 2024 marks the 50th anniversary of the first ordinations of women as Episcopal priests. You can choose to include a celebration of the 50th as part of your screening.
Can I have a filmmaker or one of the film’s protagonists come to my screening?
Yes, the director and the film protagonists are available on a limited basis to attend screenings in person, or join via Zoom. There will be an additional fee for a speaker.
Can I host more than one screening with my license?
Each license is for one public screening. This is so that the film team has enough funds to pay for the expenses of distribution. You can always recoup the fee by charging for tickets or asking for donations.
Can I buy a copy of the film for my church or university?
We expect to announce options to purchase the film as part of our celebration of the 50th anniversary next summer, 2024.
Can I stream the film at home?
We expect to announce streaming options for individuals as part of our celebration of the 50th anniversary next summer, 2024.
