NGOs, Choose a Movie Screening as Your Main Outdoor Community Event
Do you belong to an NGO which organises community events, especially in rural areas?
If you do, you’ll admit that a big challenge is bringing members of a community together to attend your event.
One of the reasons is because events organised don’t focus on a common interest among community members. They are either too formal or too educational, presenting dry information.
If you’ve difficulty in bringing members of a community together, then you could do well to organise a movie show to achieve your end.
The power of movie shows in bringing communities together has been proven the world over.
In Australia for example, The Rotary Club of Longreach organises movie screenings in drought-stricken areas in Queensland and New South Wales by providing BBQ meals and movie screenings not only to bring much-needed emotional relief to the local community but also to bring the community together.
It’s Easy to Hold a Movie Screening
You would think that organising a movie show would be a hassle, but it’s not necessarily so.
Here are some simple steps to follow in organising a movie show.
First of all, determine who your main audience is.
If you’re an NGO involved in youth work, you could choose a youth-themed movie to screen, a movie which could highlight fighting spirit for a good cause or even a motivational movie where the main character(preferably from the same age group) surmounts all obstacles to succeed.
We have a range of movies in our movie list you could check out.

Once cost and other arrangements are finalised, you could go out and look for sponsors to help make the movie screening a successful affair. This is especially advisable if you’re on a tight budget.
Also you could invite food vendors to the screening and invite them to start set up a booth and charge them a nominal fee. This would be great if you have fund raising in mind.
