I attended a screening of Visioneers last night at 826LA. They used the screening to raise money for at risk youth in LA. The projection was jenky and the audio was terrible, but I wouldn’t have changed a thing. It was perfect, and was the first time I saw the impact of BSide’s roll your own screening program:
Visioneers Charity Event
A group of 30+ people that otherwise would never know about the film gathered to watch the movie. Some made immediate plans to buy a DVD, others mentioned hosting their own screening or passing the film along, AND we raised money for a charity…ALL FOR THE PRICE OF A DVD AND SHIPPING! Amazing. This is such a brilliant solution to theatrically releasing an independent film.
