Host a screening
We invite you to host a screening of The Guide in your community.
If you are a cinema, we will provide the film without charge -- as long as all ticket revenue is donated in support of the Ukrainian people. This rule has been followed by almost 700 cinemas across the United States and other countries, raising over $125,000.
If you are an educational organization such as a university, we will charge a modest screening fee. One half of this money will go to Pronto Films, the Ukrainian producer of The Guide. The balance will be dedicated to public education and support for the Ukrainian people.
If you are a church or other civic group that does not fall into the above categories, contact us and we will work out arrangements. Again our purpose is to educate the public and support the Ukrainian people. As long as we can achieve those ends, we will happily arrange for you to show the film.
A special note about additional donations. We are delighted to note that many people wish to raise funds on behalf of the Ukrainian people -- beyond any sums raised through ticket sales or by the payment of a screening fee. Such fundraising is optional. We will gladly provide a QR code that can be publicized at events and will take donors to a site where they can use a PayPal account or credit card. Donated funds will be received and handled by Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, a 501 c3 tax exempt corporation.
Forwarding Proceeds. If you have ticket revenue, we will instruct you on how and where to send the proceeds -- usually by mail. If you wish, we can email you an invoice once we learn how well you did. If you are paying a screening fee, we will ask you to pay by check or credit card. Again, we will invoice you.
A growing number of colleges and universities are arranging on-campus screenings of The Guide to help students and others understand Ukraine’s decades-long effort to resist Russian invasion. Among them are the following:
