FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

+ CAN I HOST MY OWN REEL ROCK SCREENING?

Yes. REEL ROCK events are locally-hosted screenings run by student groups, climbing gyms, retail shops and individuals who have entrepreneurial spirit.

+ WILL SOMEONE FROM REEL ROCK COME TO HELP ME HOST?

We do not travel to the locally-hosted screenings. REEL ROCK show hosts are completely in charge of putting on a great event, including finding a venue, ticket sales and promotion.

+ DOES IT COST MONEY?

Yes. We charge a license fee to screen the REEL ROCK program. The fee varies depending on the venue size, ticket price and location.

+ WHERE CAN I SCREEN REEL ROCK?

REEL ROCK screenings can be held in a number of places such as local theaters, school auditoriums, breweries and even climbing gyms with proper screening equipment.

+ WHEN CAN I HOST REEL ROCK?

Hosts may consider shows any time after the world premiere on November 2, 2017.

+ WILL YOU PROVIDE ME WITH PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS TO HELP MAKE THIS A GREAT EVENT?

Yes. After you have signed a contract, we will share the electronic press kit, access to our poster files, logo, and high-resolution images, as well a digital download of the full REEL ROCK program once it’s completed and you have submitted the appropriate payment. You are responsible for poster and ticket printing.

+ OKAY, I SEE, BUT HOW DOES IT WORK? WILL I MAKE MONEY?

We want all REEL ROCK shows to be fun community events and to meet the local organizer’s goals — whether that’s to turn a profit, raise money for charity, or provide free entertainment for members and customers. The only payment you will make to REEL ROCK is the licensing fee to screen the program. After that, the financial model will depend on the type of show you host. Will you be renting a venue? Will you be paying for a projector? What will you be charging for ticket prices, if anything? Many show hosts will pay for posters and tickets to be printed as well.

+ CAN I FIND LOCAL SPONSORS?

Yes. Local sponsors are a great way to help cover the licensing fee. Sponsors who directly compete with REEL ROCK’s national sponsors (seen on our homepage) will not be accepted, but local climbing gyms, gear shops and other small businesses are often excited to contribute to the fee and/or sell tickets, promote, etc.

+ CAN I HOST AS A FUNDRAISER?

Definitely!

+ ARE THE FILMS RATED?

The films are not officially rated, however, they may contain occasional adult language and themes. We are happy to provide you with a censored version of the films upon request.

+ HERE ARE A FEW SUGGESTIONS FOR HOSTING A SUCCESSFUL AND FUN SHOW:

Think about your community. What kind of turnout do you expect? If you are screening in a retail shop or climbing gym please make sure there is adequate seating-room for people so viewers can be comfortable – the program is usually about two hours long. What are your plans for projection? Our films look best screened off a computer; we will send you a download link to screen the film. What price of tickets will help you offset your cost, but also not deter people away?
