Q: How will you help me plan for and promote my movie night?
A: We provide a movie night host guide that gives you instructions on how to do all the planning and provide promotion tools to help you spread the word. Everything from how to select a venue for the movie night and how to find people to help promote it, to creating an event webpage for your movie night that allows you to send invitations, track RSVPs, and post the event on Facebook. The goal is to make it as easy as possible to host the movie night, get lots of people to attend, and get as many DVDs into circulation as possible. The independent film industry needs help to grow, and National Movie Night is designed to be an easy way for people like you to help grow awareness and DVD sales.
Q: What does it cost to be a Movie Night Host?
A: There is no cost to sign up as a Movie Night Host. The only cost is for purchasing a DVD to use for the screening, and for DVDs that you may purchase to share with your guests. Movie Night Hosts can buy discounted host DVD packs that they can sell to their guests to make some extra money, cover the costs of refreshments, or pass along the savings. The purpose of National Movie Night is to help spread both awareness and DVDs for the films we are promoting, so that more people can enjoy and benefit from great independently produced films.
Q: What kind of discounts do Movie Night Hosts receive?
A: Movie Night hosts receive discounts of 15% to 50% off retail, depending on the number of copies they purchase in their host DVD pack.
