How is the weather where you are?
I don’t mean to start out with a cliche, but the polar vortex we’ve been experiencing this month is truly something else. It shows no signs of letting up, and thus, we expect to freeze now as we step out of the front door.
Our hearts flutter when the weather channel tells us we may actually be above freezing for a day or two.
“It’s supposed to warm up this weekend,” we say hopefully as we greet each other in elevators all around town, noses red and ears frozen, our coffees instantly cooling inside our gloved hands.
We’ll take it! Anything above freezing.
So, enough about the weather. We hope it’s not as cold where you are, and that you’re enjoying some sunshine this January 2014.
We’ve been away from this blog for awhile, as HERB & DOROTHY 50X50 opened in over 60 theaters around the US from September until December of last year. Thank you again and again, to everyone who came to any of our screenings to show your support. We wouldn’t be here writing this if it weren’t for you.
What’s next in the life of HERB & DOROTHY 50X50, you ask? And it’s a good thing you did. Here’s where YOU can play a big part.
If you missed the film in theaters…join our ART FOR ALL Screening Tour! Any group can join.
It’s time now to turn our full attention to the museums, universities, art centers, and community centers all around the nation who might be interested in screening the film.
Yes, that could be you. Our film is now available for screenings all around the nation.
There are no special requirements, though there is a small fee involved in order to screen the film. (Ask us about it at email@example.com!)
The process is simple.
You just pick a date and time for the screening, as well as a venue, decide if it will be for free or with admission, and let us know about it! We’ll help you with the simple 3-step booking process from there.
The 3 steps look something like this:
- 1. Fill out our screening application with your screening details.
- 2. Make payment of screening fee that entitles you to the screening rights for the film.
- 3. We send the screeners to you, and start promoting your event!
It sounds simple because it is. Your organization will be added to this SCREENINGS list if and when you decide to join our tour!
Right now, we are accepting screenings from February through September. But if you would like to show the film after September, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Okay, ready? First thing to do is just let us know you’re interested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, toss us any questions that pop up, and we’ll get the ball rolling from there.
Ask for Kiki – that’s me! I’ll take you through the process from start to finish. We’re so happy to share this journey with you.
Stay warm, everyone! I’m off to buy a burning hot coffee now.
