Campus and Community Screenings

We believe that film is a medium that can present critical issues, challenge audiences, and raise important questions. We invite you to bring these conversations to your community by hosting an inspiring screening of your own.

By purchasing a Campus or Community Screening License, you can host an admission-free screening, a donation-based admission screening, or a ticketed public screening of the film of your choosing. Campus & Community Screenings can take place at fundraising events, group gatherings, or as part of ongoing series for non-profits, corporations, theaters, farms, churches, community organizations, and more.

Terms of Service

If you are ordering a Community Screening License and are shipping it outside of the United States of America, please allow at least four weeks for your film to ship and be processed by customsU.S. shipping can take up to two weeks. Collective Eye cannot guarantee film delivery for orders placed within two weeks of the screening date. Collective Eye Films is not responsible for items that do not arrive on time.

Collective Eye Films is primarily an educational distributor, as opposed to to a consumer DVD or home video distributor. If you are purchasing a DVD for your institution, please check that you are purchasing the appropriate Educational License, which comes with Public Performance Rights. Please visit our licensing polices page under the FAQ tab to find out more about our licensing options.

How far in advance should I plan my screening?

We recommend organizing a screening and ordering a film 4 to 6 weeks out at minimum. A successful screening is planned with three months, giving a group time to find sponsors, a venue, and advertise. For more information about organizing a screening, download our Host a Screening Guide.

Which Collective Eye films are available for Community Screenings?

We are always working on expanding our Community Screenings Collection

How do I purchase a title for a Community Screening?

The films in our Community Screenings Collection have detailed information about how to purchase a screening on their individual product pages. Please fill out our screening request form or email screenings[at]collectiveeye.org if you have questions before you purchase.

How can I find a Collective Eye Screening near me?

We keep a regularly updated screenings calendar on our website (under the Community Screenings Collection). When a screening is booked with us, we immediately post it to the calendar. Be sure to keep an eye on the page-- new screenings are booked nearly every day, all over the world!

What does the screening kit include?

  • DVD of the selected film 
  • Return postage and envelope (to be used to return the DVD after the screening)
  • a license to show the film publicly
  • the Collective Eye Films Screening Guide (Downloadable to save paper)
  • a screening discussion guide for select titles

If I already have a copy of the DVD, do I still have to buy a screening kit?

Yes! You will still need to purchase the one time screening license appropriate for your organization or campus. We are happy to waive the shipping fee if you have previously purchased the DVD. 

Can my organization preview the film before purchasing?

Yes! We are happy to provide a screener link for your consideration. Please send screener link request to our screening outreach team at screenings@collectiveeye.org.
