How to host a screening
Please feel welcome to organise your own screening of Against Our Oath. You might want to host an event in your local theatre, hall, hospital, clinic, university, workplace or college. It is a great way to educate our greater Australian community about the importance of doctors being able to keep to their medical ethics and ensure they make the clinical decisions about patients.
We need to approve all screenings whether they are free entry or ticketed so you will need to follow the online registration process below. You will need to find a venue, projector, screen and sound system and be 100 per cent responsible for that yourself. You’ll need to decide if you are going to charge for tickets or have a free entry event. You’ll also need to determine how people can book tickets and whether they do this online with something like Event Brite or you choose to have an email and phone contact to book?
We can help by putting your event on the Against Our Oath website and Facebook page along with other new screenings. We help by providing you with promotional material you can email, post on Facebook or place posters promoting the event. Once your screening is confirmed by Waratah Films, you will be able to download posters you can customise screening details on, for promoting your event. A minimum lead-in time of four to six weeks is recommended for larger community screenings so you get plenty of time to promote the event and get a good attendance.
We recommend you do a trial run with the Against Our Oath DVD or Blu-ray at least a week ahead to iron out any technical hitches ahead of your event. If you can use a Blu Ray player (they cost around $100), with a digital projector instead of a DVD, the quality of the projected screening will be significantly higher.
For ticketed events, you will be required to sign a contract that sees 65% of ticket sales return to you and 35% to Waratah films. All screenings are required to register here and be approved as the first step. A DVD or Blu Ray will be provided to you as part of the package.
