Organize a screening of The Edge of the Wild in your town!
Screening The Edge of the Wild is an excellent fundraising and outreach event for environmental groups, nature centers, museums, nonprofits, outdoor retailers, conscious businesses, high schools, and colleges. You're free to charge admission at your screening to benefit your organization, and to publicize the screening to draw attention to your group and endangered species issues in your community. Our toolkit is especially geared towards creating action in support of the Endangered Species Act, which is under serious attack in Washington, DC. Watching the film with a group of people is a great experience and builds community, and is an excellent way to attract new members. We recommend combining the event with a social mixer or reception for a fun night out for people in your community to meet and talk.
We provide you with all of the tools and walk you through the process of planning and promoting a screening event. Included in the package is:
- a DVD for screening
- license agreement for one public screening
- a screening guide that includes questions to spur dialogue after the viewing
- "Save the ESA" action items, including printable postcards and online petitions
- A poster design that you can customize and print

- promotion of your event on our website and social media pages
- access to filmmaker via Skype for question and answer session after the screening
- a sample promotional email to send out
- sample facebook and twitter posts
- a suggested timeline for promotion of your event and best practices
You will need:
