City Rising Screening Request
Organizations, individuals, and educators across California are hosting screenings of City Rising to share and discuss the issue of gentrification and displacement. If you would like to host a local screening of the film in your nonprofit, company, school or community, please tell us more about your plans.
Screeners are available for the film and include a digital file and/or Blu-ray, a single screening license of the film, and digital marketing tools to help you make the screening a success. You provide the venue, projector, and audience, and we will provide you with the film and the materials you need to spread the word.
