Saving the Planet: Organise a Film Screening!

Home > The Project > Organise a Film Screening

A film screening is one of the most effective methods of catalysing discussion and debate on a given topic, theme, subject or issue. It’s also an entertaining way of communicating an informative message.

But to ensure an effective and entertaining experience, proper screening facilities and the right ambience need to be in place. Making this happen is not expensive or difficult, but it requires a bit of careful planning and paying attention to detail.

In this note, TVE Asia Pacific has summarised its learnings from many public screenings held in various countries, cultures and contexts across Asia over the years.
