On Nov. 11 2012, we kicked off a grassroots campaign to bring Souvenirs to people across the nation. We invite you to host a screening, whether at your local library, cinema, church basement, VFW, or living room. DVDs for screenings are available as pay-what-you-can so we can bring people together to broaden the national conversation on surviving the peace.
Just send us an email to let us know you are interested in hosting a screening. Tell us the name of your organization or cause, or, whether you are just having a screening with friends. If you already know location, time and date, also include that. We'll provide you a copy of the DVD, promotional materials for the screening (a basic press release, and templates for posters and flyers) and post your screening info on our site. If you wouldn't like us to post screening info on our site, please let us know.
What will I need to host a screening?
• A space to host the screening. This can be a church basement, a school gymnasium, a VFW, or even a living room.
• Equipment to show the DVD. Host a screening
Our goal with the 11-11-11 Screenings is to bring people together and broaden the national conversation about homecoming after war and surviving the peace. Money is tight for everybody these days. So we welcome organizations to use grassroots screenings of Souvenirs as a fundraising tool for their organization. How that gets organized is up to each individual, each organization.
The cost is just pay what you can. Creating this film has been mostly a grassroots effort, and contributions will help us with our distribution and to spread the word.
We felt that Veterans' Day was a great start for this, as people do want to honor Vets- they just don't always know how. It's on the calendar, but what do most of us do that day?
As Dave Borskey from Rolling Thunder states in the film: Just saying 'Welcome Home', 'Good job', that's not enough ...
Dave's words also inspired us to take action with hosting these screenings.
