Good Screenings is a new joint venture between the Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation and Franny Armstrong, which allows filmmakers to license their social justice documentaries to the public. So for example, if you wanted to host a screening in your church hall, you can download a screening license on payment of a fee (calculated on a sliding scale). You are then free to charge people to come along to your screening so you recoup the fee and can even make a profit which is yours to use as you like – which makes it great for fundraising events.
Filmmakers get a cut of the licence fee and profits go into a new production fund for social justice documentaries.
Films available for screening currently include The End of the Line, The Yes Men Fix the World, Moving to Mars and Chosen, with more titles being added on a monthly basis.
