Host a screening

How to host a screening

Public screening events are no longer possible with COVID-19 restrictions in place. However some innovative screening hosts and conference organisers have adapted to this situation and are instead organising “Zoom” Question & Answer online sessions after audiences watch Against Our Oath online ($9.99 on Vimeo). Please feel welcome to contact us about an online screening event.

If you would like to plan for further down the track when public events are able to occur again, please read the information below. Wishing you all the best of health in the months ahead.

Please feel welcome to organise your own screening of Against Our Oath after coronavirus restrictions are lifted. You might want to host an event in your local theatre, hall, hospital, clinic, university, college, school or workplace. 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 Eventbrite or you could choose to have an email and phone contact to book? Then fill in the registration form and it will be emailed off to us. You should hear back within two days.

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. We can promote your event on the Against Our Oath website and Facebook page along. We will provide you with pre-written promotional material you can email, post on Facebook or a file to print posters to display 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 will send you a DVD, Blu Ray, or cinema electronic file to play the film, included within the licence cost. We recommend you do a trial run screening at least a week ahead to iron out any technical hitches ahead of your event.

For paid ticketed events, you will be required to sign a contract that sees 65% of ticket sales return to you and 35% to Waratah Films.

The film has an M classification rating for Mature Audiences so it is not recommended for children 15 years and younger.

To begin the process all screenings are required to register on one of the links below, and then be approved, as the first step.
