How much does it cost me to hold a screening?


We ask the hosts of a screening to make a contribution to MND awareness and our outreach with the film, depending on the size of the screening. This will enable us to –

  • cover the cost of providing you with a copy of the film and publicising all screenings,
  • enable us to support screenings in as many places as possible, including those areas of the world where hosts wouldn't be able to afford this fee,
  • reach out to even more partners working on MND/ALS awareness around the world, and
  • gain maximum publicity.

Just like Neil Platt said –

"We have yet to reach millions."

None of the partners involved in this campaign will make any profits from it. Any net proceeds from screening fees will be used to fund MND/ALS research (50%) and further outreach work with the film (50%).

The contribution we ask for will vary depending on what format you choose to screen from and on your audience size. For video downloads, we ask you to pay

  • £50 ($85) for mid-size community screenings with up to 100 people, or
  • £100 ($170) for larger public screenings.

If you require a DVD or a BluRay disc these costs will be a bit higher. You can see all options in our booking tool. (If you are a cinema operator and require a DCP, please contact us for pricing.)

Please note that the option to host small screenings for up to 20 people was only available around Global Awareness Day. A general DVD and video-on-demand release will follow later this year. If you haven't done so already, please sign up to get notified about the release.

Keep in mind that you may need to pay for a venue as well, but on the other hand you could also charge an entry fee or ask for donations. For example, if you have 50 people coming to your event, it should be very easy to raise £50 from them to pay for the download. 

If you live somewhere in the world or are in a situation where these costs seem too high, please contact us anyway and we will do our best to find a solution.

For MND Association members, branches and groups in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the film can be provided at no charge as a download (or, if that doesn't work for you, on DVD). Simply provide us with your membership number when registering, and we will send you a voucher to book your copy.

If you know roughly how big your audience is going to be and what format you want to use, you'll be able to book your copy now.
