Be it a festival screening or a one night only event of their own creation, what have independent filmmakers done to bring in crowds? Where have they promoted? Who have they partnered with to make their events special? What do you need to consider when working with a venue like the Plaza Theatre or Landmark Midtown Art Cinema? What questions should you ask? What costs should you expect? How can you work with the theatre to make your screening a success?
