How to make it More Than a Film!
In addition to a Screening, we encourage groups and individuals to use More Than a Roof as a tool for movement-building. Here are just two ideas for turning your showing into More Than a Film!
- Community Storytelling Opportunities
Challenging the mainstream media narrative that silences, vilifies, and isolates those who are actually victims of the human right to housing crisis, More Than a Roof presents a counter-narrative that acclaims, raises, and connects the aspirations and struggles of those most impacted by the crisis. Continue what the film begins by creating storytelling opportunities at a screening to encourage members of your organization and other audience participants to share struggles and successes related to the fight for housing rights in the United States.
We encourage you to video and audio record these testimonies and join an online conversation about housing rights in the United States. Please contact us for details. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Panel Discussion(s) & Other Local Programming
In conjunction with a screening of More Than A Roof we invite local grassroots & media groups to organize panel presentations and group discussions, showcase their own media productions, plan trainings, workshops & other programming. We can help provide discussion questions, find potential panelists and more. Email email@example.com.
