Funding Support for US schools

Amongst a range of financial measures to support the national recovery from Covid-19, both the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the CARES act, include significant financial support for schools to mitigate against the negative impact on the education of our kids.

Our 1,000s of US School hosts regularly screen our movies as part of their wider Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) and mental health programs. Many have told us of their intention to use these available funds to cover the cost of future events and continue to support important SEL and mental health activities.

While we can't offer specific guidance on how to use the available funds, we would encourage prospective US School hosts to speak with their administration, district and state educators - and to learn more about the use of these funds here (ARP) and here (CARES)

Event Testimonials

My intention for planning this screening was to increase community awareness and engage in meaningful dialogue. Both were accomplished. Thank you!

Multicare Eatonville Clinic

As a parent of three, I appreciated learning the science behind why these devices and the apps my kids use are so addicting. I really appreciate Screenagers work in highlighting this very important issue.

Notre Dame Academy

During COVID 19, this was a creative way to connect with our audience of parents and teens and help address some of the anxiety they are facing right now.

Screenagers is so well done that it will be the go-to documentary on this topic for decades. Every family must see it, even if they feel technology is not disrupting their family and their kids relationships.

screenagers events faq's

How much lead time do I need between booking and hosting a screening? 

We recommend a minimum of 3-4 weeks. This is to allow you enough time to publicize your event. Please let us know during the booking process if you need a sooner screening and our team will try to support your request.

Can I organize multiple screening events for my school district of community? 

Yes and we offer reduced license rates for running multiple events and screenings. 

how many times can I show the Movie(s) With a one-time license?

A Screenagers license is for a single community screening for an audience size suitable for your venue.

what kind of venue do I need to host a screening? 

You only need a space large enough to fit your audience, along with the relevant screening equipment (i.e. large display, projector, cinema screen, etc.) Most hosts use a school gym or auditorium, church, community centre or library meeting space. Some make arrangements with a school theatre or local commercial film theatre. 

Can I charge for tickets to my event?

Yes. You can set a ticket price at any amount you choose and of course you can offer free attendance to your event. Something in the region of $5-10 is common where our hosts choose to charge for tickets and we will set up a free RSVP and ticketing website for you to offer to guests. 

Who facilitates post film discussions at a screening event?

We highly recommend having a post film discussion with your audience immediately following the film. Most organisers choose a person from their own community to lead the discussion - we provide a moderator guide to support this. The guide contains facts from the film, and suggested discussion questions. Some hosts invite a panel of local experts to answer questions.

Additionally, Screenagers Filmmaker Delaney Ruston, MD. is available to book for a fee to lead the discussion and answer questions at your event. 

Should parents bring children to see Screenagers? What ages are appropriate? 

Our hope is that parents and children all see this film either together or separately (If your school hosts a school day student screening for example). We generally recommend Screenagers for children in 4-5th grade (age 9) and up. We believe every family and community should make their own decisions around this, considering the film’s documentary style, length and content. The children featured in this film are in middle school and high school. 

I just want to screen this to a small group / in a classroom setting? Is an event suitable for me? 

Yes - please get in touch via our inquiry form and we can provide you with details on screening our movie(s) in this format. 

Do the films come with Subtitles?

Yes, we have many subtitle language options available for the movies. Please let us know your requirements during the booking process. 

Can I screen the movie to guests as part of an online event?

Not with our standard screening license or as part of membership to The Screenagers Project. Please get in touch with us via the inquiry form below to discuss your requirements with one of our team.
