Whether to underscore support for workplace diversity and inclusion, to acknowledge LGBTQ Pride or History Month, to help advance the mission of groups that advocate for equality, or just because it's a fascinating, award-winning movie -- a showing of The Lavender Scare will be an enlightening and memorable occasion.  There are several ways you can bring the power of The Lavender Scare to your community!

You can host a screening right in your school, office or business.

You can invite the whole community, or make it a private event for members of your organization or business.  You can charge admission, or charge nothing at all.  It’s up to you!  Prices are determined by the kind of event you have in mind, and thanks to our partners at Tugg (the leading theatrical event platform for independent film) you can get an instant quote online.
