Working with Ourscreen, you pick the cinema and time/date you like. There is no charge to book the screening and you won’t lose any money. The cinema sets the minimum required number of tickets that have to be sold for the screening to go ahead. Once that number is met, it’s confirmed. If enough tickets aren’t sold by the deadline, it will be cancelled. People’s cards are only charged once the minimum number of tickets are sold, until then it’s just a reservation.
However, it is quite a lot of work to sell the tickets, it isn’t easy to do. It will be easier if you are good at using social media to help you promote the film and bring in your audience and be willing to put quite a lot of effort into it. I would urge you, if you book a screening, to contact us and let us know so that we can provide you with useful advice, information, stills, flyers etc to help promotion easier. Please note, just booking a screening at a time you are free and not doing any promotion won't get the screening to go head. You do have to do a lot of promotion and inviting people to come along. Try and make it at a popular time to see a film. Contact us at email@example.com for more advice and to help you spread the word.
Please also when promoting use our @StillLovedDoc twitter handle, so that we can tweet and retweet for you, because otherwise we might not know who you are. We will do all we can to help you. We will also share these screenings on our Facebook page. Try to not create a screening in a town where there already is another screening taking place, unless that one has sold out, it would be better to get to that screening if possible.
Please note that we can’t offer Q&A’s for these screenings. By all means run it past us and if we are free we might be able to come, but this won’t be a guarantee. You could however, ask the cinema to see if you can organise your own post screening discussion, which might be helpful for your audience. Maybe by working with a local Sands or other baby loss support group and asking them to come in and join the post screening discussion. This would work really well.

So everyone who has not had a screening near them, now is your chance to make it happen. Watching Still Loved on the big screen is a wonderful experience. I hope you are able to make this happen.
