Host A Screening

 We are thrilled to tell you more about the Chasing Coral impact campaign!

Our goal is to inspire audiences with the film’s message, spark conversation and drive people to take meaningful action locally. And because we can’t be everywhere at once, we’d love your help bringing Chasing Coral to your community.

A message from Director, Jeff Orlowski

Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose a date, time, and place to host your Chasing Coral screening. It can really be as big or small as you want.

  3. Receive additional screening resources. We’ll have some very special features available for your screening, in addition to ongoing impact materials and calls-to-action to help unify our efforts.
  4. Host your screening!
