Host a Motherland Screening

The screening license can be used for single paid audiences under 50 people. For use within a library system of a specific institution. Within a single organization as a research resource. For a single event such as a screening or multiply re showings within a single film festival. This license does not grant constant public broadcast or grant the right of indefinite public screenings. If you would like to be an agent and secure multiply screenings please contact us.

Screenings allow dialogue and create social-cohesion. They also allow the community based value systems to develop. Join the new economic-social model of the future and share the power and inspiration of Motherland with your community by hosting a film screening at your home, local library, school, community center, place of worship, embassy, or any other location. Here is everything you need to organize a successful event:

1. Choose Location and Format

Choose and confirm where the screening will be held. Ideal spaces would be equipped with DVD Player, projector (or TV) and sound system. If the space does not have that, you can bring your own audiovisual equipment.

Decide the format of your event. Will the event be free-standing or will it be part of a African celebration? Many successful screenings have post-film discussions, guest speakers, or a panel featuring people with valuable insights. If you are interested in having the director or Sona Jobarteh (music performance) come to your event for a post-film Q & A discussion, please email us after completing the booking form.

2. Order a Screening DVD

You will need to order a DVD with Public Performance Rights (Public Performance Rights allow you to screen the film in public). The DVD you need for your screening will depend on the type of organization hosting the screening. There are 3 categories:

Colleges, Universities, and Museums: Colleges and universities must purchase the $300 Educational DVD for Colleges and Universities. This DVD includes Public Performance Rights. Click Here to Order. These allow educational usage of the film as a teaching tool or a resource.

Non-paid events by community groups, Schools and Public Libraries: Schools, Public Libraries, and Non-Profits must purchase the $100 Educational DVD. This DVD includes Public Performance Rights .(NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL OFFICIAL PREMIERES ARE FINISHED)

Make money buy buying our bulk discount DVD in packs of 10 and generate income while spreading educational content with your community

3. Promote and Publicize your Event

Publicity helps get people to attend your event, and also raises awareness for those who can't be there! You may want to spread the word through mass e-mails and through social networks like Facebook, . You may also want to work with partner organizations, put posters and flyers up in your community, or even send press releases to local media.

Additionally, please email us the details of your event so that we can publize it.

 

4. Prepare for your Event

Test Equipment: In preparation for your screening event, you should test your equipment to make sure that everything (picture, sound, etc) is working correctly.

Prepare for post-film discussion: You may want to download a conversation guide that will make it easy for you to lead a discussion about issues in the film.

Confirm: Confirm everything with the venue, discussion participants

5. Video and Sound Check

Before the screening, we recommend running a video and sound check with the equipment you will use for the event. To do this, run the DVD and make sure the sound and picture are clear. Motherland is mixed in 5.1 Surround sound so for maximum quality please have a THX certified 6 channel system.

6. The Event!

We suggest giving a brief introduction before the screening to let people know that there will be a post-screening discussion, and to encourage them to stick around! Tell them about how you hosted a screening and encorage them to network and do the same.

 

7. Tell Us How It Went

Please let us know how the event went. We'd love to hear about people's reaction to the film, the post-film discussion, memorable moments. Your stories help to inspire us to tell more stories that need to be told.
