Host a Screening

Art21 encourages a wide variety of partners to host screenings, including: schools (K–12 and universities); libraries; museums; nonprofit organizations; galleries; alternative art/cultural spaces; community centers; and more. Visit the Screening Society FAQs for more about hosting a screening.


  • Screening events must be free to attend; have the intention to gather more than 10 people to view a film; be universally accessible; and be advertised and open to the general public.
  • Hosts must submit a post-event summary—including photos, attendance numbers, and guest registration sheets—to Art21 following their event.
