by Rob Mueller and Carlie Cook

Things to consider adding to the screening process:

How to set up a screening:

Follow the steps to set up a screening 

Gathr will provide you with a screening page 

Share the screening page and promote the film to your network to have people reserve tickets in advance

How a Gathr Screening Works:

A minimum number of people must reserve tickets from the screening page before the screening request expires 

If the minimum number of reservations is not met, the screening does not take place and nobody will be charged

Suggestions to help your screening tip:

Contact local rehabilitation hospitals and clinics 

The film is a great way to educate therapists as well as people who have been recently injured

These types of groups typically are very interested and have a large network to promote the screening to

Contact local sports teams, Girl Scout/ Boy Scout Troops and other clubs

Attending a screening is a fun and educational group activity or outing

Attending a screening could be a way for a troop to earn one of their badges 

This is a great way to get a large group of people to RSVP 

Contact local celebrities and politicians 

If you get these people on board they have a large network of people and social media followers that they can have an impact on getting people to RSVP

Even better if you can get them to personally attend the screening 

Make a Facebook Event 

Use other forms of social media 

Consider contacting local media 

It could be a cool event for them to cover as well as a great way to promote the screening 

Share with all of your personal friends and family
