Sign up to host your own community screening

Design your film screening to suit you – whether it’s your family in the lounge room, your workplace at lunch time, or a bustling gathering in your local town hall. You could even host the film screening online, so everyone can enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.  

It can be as large or as small as you’d like. What matters is bringing together your friends, neighbours, co-workers or classmates to watch and reflect on what last summer’s bushfires might mean for you – helping to inspire meaningful climate action in your own community.

Once you’ve registered your interest in hosting a screening, we’ll be in touch with a Host Guide that includes:

  • How to access the film for free
  • Tips and tricks for your event
  • A conversation guide to explore the themes of the film
