FAQs For Screening Hosts:


“Disruption” is an inspiring hour-long documentary film about climate change — the science, the politics, and the movement.

Any time you’d like!

ANYONE — students, teachers, parents. You don’t need to have ever done anything like this before.

Film is a great tool for organizing and mobilizing a movement for action. By hosting this screening and discussion, you’ll be helping recruit and energize lots of new people into this rising movement.

Register a Local Screening

You should have been emailed a confirmation and direct contact information with our support staff to answer further questions to help make your screening a success, in addition to links to watch/download the film. After you sign up, you can also use your “host tools” to communicate with people who RSVP.

Hosting a screening is very simple — all you need to do is register your event, make sure you’ve got the equipment you need to screen the movie, reserve a couple of hours, and spread the word! You can always co-host a screening and invite local leaders to co-lead the discussion after the film if you wish.

Let us know by contacting — we can try to recruit another event host in your area, and let your attendees know about the change of plans.

The whole event should take about two hours. Here’s a sample schedule:

7pm – Event starts, allow approximately 10 minutes for people to arrive.

7:10 –  Short introduction to the film.

7:15 – Start the movie! It’s 60 minutes long.

8:15 – Discussion of the movie for 45 minutes.

Family, friends, neighbors — anyone you feel should see the film. If you want to expand your reach, consider inviting representatives from diverse community groups so numerous points of view are included and a well-rounded conversation can take place.

We encourage bigger groups to get together to screen the film if possible – and that means bigger places to congregate.  Possible venues include schools, universities, religious institutions and community centres. Be proactive. Think Big. Any place people can get together, watch and discuss can be a screening venue. If you don’t want to deal with any logistics, you can also host a screening at your home.

The film is available to watch online, download, or burn to a DVD.

If you need a playable DVD, you can download the video file and then burn it to create a playable disc. You can find the video file and more information on required software here.

The film will inspire conversation on its own, but choosing one person who will moderate or facilitate discussion will help to focus the group and clearly identify actions that people can easily engage in. It’s a good idea to designate one person to take notes and collect all attendees’ contact information so that you can continue to communicate with one another after the screening. We recommend that before the discussion ends, you offer your guests a list of easy, specific actions that they can take within your community (and beyond).

Here’s a discussion guide for screening hosts.

To edit your event or check on RSVPs, you need to use your “Host Tools.”

To access the Host Tools, you have two options:

1) You can click on the link that is in the confirmation mail  we sent you.

2) You can also login to your Host Tools at If you’ve never logged in before, you’ll need to click the link on that page to to set a password.

The best way to make sure your screening isn’t open to the public is to select the “Make your event private” box when you register a screening. Private Screenings won’t be displayed on our map or publicly searchable — but you can distribute the link to others if you want to let them RSVP.

Sorry about that — sometimes our system has a hard time with certain addresses. You can fill out the backup form and we can register your event manually.

Subtitles are available in 9 languages, and we’re working to add others. To view the movie in a language other than English, go to the film page on Vimeo and press the “CC” button on the bottom of the video player.
