FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO CAN HOST A SCREENING?
WILL SOMEONE FROM REEL ROCK COME TO HELP ME HOST?
While we’d love to be at every show, we’re not able to travel to each locally-hosted screening. As a Reel Rock show host, you would be in charge of putting on a great event, including finding a venue, ticket sales and promotion.
DOES IT COST MONEY?
Yes. We charge a licence fee to screen the Reel Rock programme. The fee varies depending on the venue size and other factors, and is designed to reward the film makers and therefore support the production of independent films. You get to keep all the ticket revenue - we want the event to be a success for you and we don’t ask for any box office split.
WHERE CAN I SCREEN REEL ROCK?
REEL ROCK screenings can be held in a number of places such as climbing gyms, local theatres, school auditoriums, and cinemas.
WHEN CAN I HOST REEL ROCK?
You can host your Reel Rock 15 screening anytime until 31 December 2021. The digital release of the Reel Rock programme is scheduled for 15 July 2021 but this doesn’t mean you need to host your screening before this date. Many climbers will prefer to watch Reel Rock films with other climbers live on the big screen rather than at home online.
WILL YOU PROVIDE ME WITH PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS TO HELP MAKE THIS A GREAT EVENT?
Yes. After you have signed a contract, we will share the electronic press kit, access to our poster files, logo and high-resolution images, as well a digital download of the full Reel Rock program once it’s completed and you have submitted the appropriate payment. We will also add your event to our website and facebook events page.
CAN I HOST AS A FUNDRAISER?
Definitely! We encourage hosts to get creative - maybe you’re helping raise money for a favourite charity, a clean-up day for your local crag, an outreach program for your gym, or a bolting fund for developing a new wall.
IS THE PROGRAMME FAMILY FRIENDLY?
The films may contain occasional adult language and themes. We are happy to provide you with a censored version of the films upon request.
HOW DO YOU SELL TICKETS?
There are lots of ticketing platforms you can use to sell tickets, or you may be able to sell tickets via an existing online store or at a climbing gym, retail shop or similar. We can also help you out and set up the event ticketing for you if you would prefer.
ANY OTHER ADVICE?
Think about your community. What kind of turnout do you expect? If you are screening in a retail shop or climbing gym please make sure there is adequate seating-room for people so viewers can be comfortable – the program is usually about two hours long. What are your plans for projection? Our films look best screened off a computer; we will send you a download link to screen the film. What price of tickets will help you offset your cost, but also not deter people away?
CAN I HOST MY OWN REEL ROCK SCREENING?
Yes! These REEL ROCK events are locally-hosted screenings run by student groups, climbing gyms, climbing clubs, people fundraising and individuals.
