Dear Kickstarter supporters
After some delays due to film festival and distribution restrictions, we are excited that your very own ROAMING WILD dvd is finally in the mail to you! Thanks so much again for your support in helping us complete the film. We could never have done it without your backing and we really appreciate it!
We also have some exciting news and, if you are moved by the film, we would love your help getting it seen by as many people as possible!
We have recently partnered with Gathr Films to release the film in theaters across the country. This partnership makes it possible for people like you to organize a screening in your community. We believe ROAMING WILD is best seen on the big screen with other people and that the more people who see it, the better we can push for more sustainable policy solutions for wild horses. We’re looking for movie captains to host screenings all across the country.
Requesting a screening is easy, and this is how it works:
1. Request a screening on Gathr
Request a screening in your area using this link: http://gathr.us/films/roaming-wild
After you submit a request on Gathr, you’ll become the movie “captain” and receive your own personal screening webpage where all of your friends can easily reserve tickets to the film. As long as enough people reserve tickets in advance, the screening will happen. If not enough people reserve a ticket, the screening doesn’t happen
Note: It can take anywhere from 24 hours to 2 weeks to receive the link. Once you receive it, you and others can begin reserving tickets. After enough tickets are reserved, the screening “tips”, and everyone’s credit cards are charged. If it doesn’t “tip” by the deadline, then nobody is charged.
2. Get the word out
Promote your ROAMING WILD screening by starting with friends and family, and then partnering with organizations in your community (such as local barns, equestrian groups, student groups, or organizations). Remember, the screening will only happen if enough people reserve tickets.
3. Check out our ‘Host a Screening’ page for more resources
We’ll be updating this page regularly with a screening toolkit, more information about promoting and hosting your ROAMING WILD screening, a checklist for the day of, and answers to your questions, so check back frequently. http://www.roamingwildfilm.com/see-the-film/host-a-screening/
Thank you making this film possible and for helping us get it seen by as many people as possible!
