Hosting a screening of A Will for the Woods is an exciting way to share the film with your community or organization. You can use it to educate, raise awareness, spark conversations, raise funds, move people to action, or simply gather around a film that is meaningful to you. These licenses are available to anyone – individuals or organization – can happen in all sorts of venues, and can be either public or private. 

Get started – choose a screening type:

For these screenings, we have partnered with Bullfrog Films, the oldest and largest publisher of films about the environment in the US. Bullfrog will be in charge of fulfilling these licenses in all territories, apart from Australia and New Zealand. For these screenings, the same guidelines outlined below apply, but rates will be converted into AUD currency.

AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND: please contact our producer Amy Browne amybrowne1@gmail.com, as she will be fulfilling screenings in this territory.

Bullfrog have two types of licenses:

Community Screening License: 

  • Choose "Community" if you would like to host a one-time screening with the option of charging admission.
  • Available as either a DVD with a scene selection menu & SDH Captions or a Blu-ray.
  • To purchase, please visit our Bullfrog Community page. (Note: This is a special link that includes a 5% discount.)

Educational Screening License: 

  • Choose "Educational" if you want to host multiple screenings where you will not be charging admission.
  • Available as a DVD with a scene selection menu & SDH Captions.
  • To purchase, please visit our Bullfrog Educational page. (Note: This is a special link that includes a 5% discount.)

hosting your screening & resources:

To help you host a successful and meaningful event, we have compiled a list of resources from both us and Bullfrog Films. These will help guide you in planning your screening and discussion. 

RESOURCES – Downloadable discussion guide, green burial and filmmaker FAQs, resources, call to action, and more.

Downloadable Press Kit – Includes stills, graphics, press quotes, and information about the film and topic that you can use in promoting your screening.

Hosting FAQs


Here are all the answers about how, when, where and why you can host a screening. Please contact us if you still have a question after reading these FAQs.

  1. Who can host a screening?
    Anyone! To help you plan and host a screening, we've prepared some resources, which you can find here.
  2. How long is the film?
    94 minutes.
  3. Can I see the film before committing to hosting an event?
    Yes. On our Bullfrog Educational page in the top right corner, you can select a "Preview DVD." Then select "Add to Cart" and hit "Check Out." The only charge is for shipping. There is also an option to preview the film online. Please contact Bullfrog for more details. 
  4. Are special rates available? 
    Yes! The links listed on this page already include a 5% reduced rate – a special discount for the A Will for the Woods community. Additionally, Bullfrog invites activists and grassroots groups to inquire about special rates for the educational license. You can find their contact details on the Educational page
  5. I backed the A Will for the Woods Kickstarter campaign and have a community screening license. What do I need to do in order to plan a screening?
    Your contribution entitles you to a screening license, so you are all set! If you have not received your screening kit yet, please contact us.
  6. Are high definition Blu-ray discs available?
    Yes! You will have to contact Bullfrog to let them know that you would like the Blu-ray option. (Please note, the Blu-ray option may only be available for the Community license.) If you are playing on a large screen or projection and have the ability to play Blu-rays, we recommend this format. Please note: Blu-rays only play in Blu-ray players, and our Blu-rays do not have SDH Captions or a scene selection menu like our regular DVDs. There are English subtitles, however, which can be turned on with a Blu-ray remote control. 
  7. Can I show the film in a regular cinema? 
    Yes! For this you would also use the Communities page or contact the filmmakers. While this is not always covered by a community license, we are very excited about you bringing A Will for the Woods to your local big screen! If you plan to show the film in a regular cinema, we do ask that you please contact us as we may be able to provide additional press and assistance with the cinema's format requirements.
  8. What is the "rental" period on the educational page?
    This is an option for those interested in the educational license for a short term rental. You can rent the film for three days, and show it as many times as you like within that time. (As with all educational licenses, no admission can be charged.)
  9. Should I let you know once I have a screening planned?
    We'd love to help promote these events, so please contact us with your screening details.
  10. Are the filmmakers available for Q&As and post-screening discussions?
    We are available and would love to be a part of your event. If you are interested, please contact us so that we can discuss this with you further. While in-person appearances can be arranged, Skype, FaceTime, or other video screening conference programs have also been very successful.
