How to Host A Screening

On January 19, 2017, movie theaters and non-theatrical venues will be showing the film as part of A Plastic Ocean Day, creating worldwide momentum to coincide with the film’s publicity and online release.

PPC members can plan a local screening of A Plastic Ocean to raise support and gain awareness for our collective missions in their communities. We recommend that local screenings of this acclaimed documentary use it as a tool to make an impact for your organization and start a local conversation about waste. Screenings can be fundraisers and planned along with a discussion or Q&A with local experts.

PPC will be hosting the premiere event for the documentary at a movie theater in Los Angeles, California, with a Q&A and panel discussion after the film led by representatives from several L.A.-based coalition member organizations, including 5 Gyres and Algalita. To participate in this screening or find out more about our format, contact our office.
