If you are reading this, you are probably thinking about holding your own community screening of a Tribe of Heart film. May many lives be touched by your efforts!
The guidelines that follow were developed over more than 15 years and are based on the experiences of hundreds of people holding screenings of our films in communities all over the world. They are intended to create a welcoming and respectful environment for audience members, and to preserve the potential of our films to foster peaceful change long into the future. We invite you to contact us with your questions, suggestions or comments -- the next great idea may come from you!
Permission to hold Free Community ScreeningsWe encourage any motivated individual or group to hold a community screening of our films, provided all of our guidelines, detailed below, are respected and followed. Failure to adhere to any of these guidelines will be seen as a violation of the terms under which this permission is granted. More importantly, it will undermine the spirit with which this gift is being offered. So please, take the time to read each of the items below, and be sure you can agree to our requirements before proceeding with your event.
Permission to hold Larger ScreeningsScreenings in venues that seat 120 people or more require advance registration online (see below).
Screenings of Tribe of Heart films are intended to be offered to the public for free. Under special circumstances, admission may be charged -- for example, to cover the cost of holding an event at a larger venue -- but you must contact Tribe of Heart for permission in advance.
Tribe of Heart films were created, and are distributed, solely for the educational benefit of viewers. Therefore, at all screening events involving our films, we require that no solicitations for funding be made on behalf of any organization before, during or after the film. Likewise, screenings may not be used as a vehicle for membership recruitment or as part of an effort to promote a legislative initiative. To maintain a non-commercial atmosphere, corporate sponsorship of screening events is also not allowed.
Literature and Speakers at Screening EventsOut of respect for those whose stories are told in our films, no materials may be distributed at screenings promoting products of exploitation or the industries that produce them, including those bearing labels such as "humane," "organic," "cage -free," "free-range," "grass-fed" or other similar terms. This would be in direct contradiction of our films' message of holistic nonviolence, including the right of every sentient individual not to be confined, exploited, mutilated, or killed. Also in accordance with the principles of holistic nonviolence, materials promoting the use of genetic engineering in the production of food are banned from screenings of Tribe of Heart films.
Online RegistrationWe require that all Large Screenings (in venues seating 120 people or more) be pre-registered, using our quick and easy on-line registration form. (Note: There are no screening fees of any sort involved). You should hear back from us within a week with our approval. If not, please contact us .
Tribe of Heart reserves the right to deny permission to any individual or organization to publicly screen our films.
