Private Virtual Screenings

As part of the Outreach & Engagement Campaign for CURED, co-directors Bennett Singer and Patrick Sammon are partnering with LGBTQ groups, mental health organizations, historical societies, academic institutions, and community groups to host private screenings of the film. With COVID-19 still on the radar, all the screenings right now are virtual. If in-person screenings become possible during the year ahead, the team will shift its plans and may also offer hybrid events with both an in-person and virtual component. In the meantime, the producers are using a software platform (called Show&Tell) to connect with audiences that allows them to offer as many private virtual screenings as can be arranged (and funded). Each screening is co-branded with the host organization, and hosts have the option of recording a short video to introduce the film and welcome their members to the screening event.

For each private screening event, CURED is available for a week on Show&Tell, so viewers can stream the film at their leisure. Near the end of the screening window, a live Q&A takes place on Zoom featuring a panel of experts and members of the film team. As in traditional Q&As, audience members are able to ask questions of the panelists and engage in an interactive discussion. The filmmakers collaborate with the co-host of each screening event to assemble a panel of their choosing that matches the goals of the event. Show&Tell allows screenings to be free, ticketed, or supported by donations. Here are details about how the platform works.

Please contact the filmmakers for more information about hosting a virtual screening for your organization.
