About the Community Partners Program

In our Community Partners program, we use our film expertise to pair your local business, nonprofit organization, community group, or student group with a film whose subject matter or story fits with you. Once paired, you help us promote the film to all the people you know and love through email blasts, social media, fliers, and word-of-mouth. In 2017, we worked with our community partners to screen more than 200 films and reach more than 75,000 people.

This program is free for everyone! It's about love, not money. You bring us the people you love, and we’ll show them a good time and thank you in a bunch of different ways.
