About the Book:

Whether you're a mainstream movie impresario waiting in the wings, an event-planner seeking to use a film for a fundraiser, a cause wanting to use film to educate and get the word out, a film society or group, or an individual who is passionately committed to sharing a movie you feel matters, Show it in Public can guide you through the process.

Show it in Public will help you put on a great event, avoid the more common pitfalls — and have fun while you do it. You will learn to: read a film festival catalogue; negotiate with a disgtributor; pick your way through the legal minefield; select a venue; work with cinema staff; create workable solutions for non-cinema screenings; understand digital video projection; communicate with the tech crew; plan and run your event; go that little bit further to really put on a good show; and much, much more.
