Host a Screening–there are THREE ways!


Screening licenses are available for screenings at service agencies, conferences, community centers, libraries, colleges or universities and other non-traditional screening locations.  You provide the venue, projector, and audience and our partners at TUGG provide you with the film and digital promotional tools to make the screening a success.  You may also want to arrange for continuing education credits.  Please let us know if you’d like for someone from our film team to be present in person or by SKYPE for Q and A’s or panel discussion.  Contact TUGG and they will get right back to you and help you get started: tugg


Our partners at TUGG give you the power to bring Portraits of Professional CAREgivers to your favorite movie theaters!  The process is simple:  pick a date, pick a theater, and enlist your audience to meet the RSVP threshold online before the deadline.  If enough reservations are made, the screening happens.  You can use the event as a fundraiser and even host a panel discussion right in the theater.  Many groups also arrange for continuing education credits.
