In the world of film, you can find a plethora of different ways that things like stories, art, and politics are put onto a screen. It’s a medium that can cover so much and make you feel so different in the space of around two hours. People can get so much out of a particular movie that it influences them and their behavior going forward.
Let’s say you’ve made a short film yourself, or perhaps you’re looking to gather people in the community for a few hours to sit and take part in a film screening – something that’s probably different from their regular routine. How are you going to get everything sorted and make it all happen? Well, there are going to be a multitude of different things you’ll probably want to do uniquely, but let’s take a look at some fundamentals that pretty much everyone should address.
Find A Locatio
You’ll need to choose the right place for this event. It’ll need to be a location that is accessible for people in terms of space and comfort as well as being a place that people can find in the first place. There are a bunch of different types of venues that a film screening can take place. You might want to choose a local hall or a specific business venue that specializes in this kind of thing. You could also book a slot in a hotel if you’re looking to be a little fancier. As we said before, you have many, many options here.
Choose The Feature
They’re here to see a film – so pick something for the people! In all seriousness, it depends on what your motive for the occasion is. If you’re looking to show the people the project you’ve created, then you’re going to want to prepare everything you’ve worked on and hopefully show it all off. If you’re looking to build a community, then you’ll want to pick something that everyone will enjoy – perhaps keep have a theme you can continue if things go well.
Decide On The Design
You could, of course, keep the surrounding as they are. But if you don’t want to it be bland, then you could add some relevant decorations to the venue to get everyone into the spirit. There are different types of things, like posters, that you could add to make the place look a little better. You could also hit up sites, like Step and Repeat, and get some banners for the event. Anything to take people’s mind away from the norm and make them feel as though they’re in a fancier area.
Market The Event
Before it’s even taken place, you’ll want people to know about it so that you can maximize the attendance. There are loads of ways to market the event, and thanks to modern technology, there are some super simple ways. You can use social media, a free service, to get the attention of the locals and even out-of-towners. You can also use the likes of magazines and newspapers just like the old days!
