We believe in the importance of shared experiences to encourage connection and empathy. All of our films screen to communities, either in-person; school auditoriums, community centers and corporate meeting spaces, or virtually, with everyone on their own devices, but watching at the same time.
Our films work best when followed by group discussion and questions. We provide a pre-recorded expert mini-panel that answers the most frequent questions; you can then follow up with a discussion of your own, or opt for one of our best 45 minute pre-recorded expert panels. Alternatively, book a custom live panel with experts from the film, to which you can add members of your community. Virtual delivery allows us to tailor the best solution for your audience.
Sometimes it's impossible to gather everyone together at the same time. Often, post screening word-of-mouth causes an upswell in interest after the screening, either from people who didn't watch, or from those who want to share it with their families. It's easy to license the film for a week or more's worth of on-demand viewing after the live screening event.
Our screenings come with:
- Full packet of promotional material
- Detailed Discussion Guide
- Answers to frequently asked questions
- Tip sheets and links to additional contacts
- Resource library of panel clips, additional videos, podcasts, articles and books
- Feed-back survey
- Follow-up quiz and in-class exercises
In the past few months, the mental health impacts of Covid-19 have been extreme: Mental Health America reports a 634% rise in use of their online tool for anxiety and a 837% increase in those seeking information about depression, with those under the age of 25 particularly badly affected. Our Mental Health film trilogy is designed to particularly help this group with some of the biggest stressors of Covid.
Mental Health America reports:
Combined, these three films address many of the causes and symptoms of adolescent mental health, and give tools and strategies to cope in the short-term, plus develop long-term resilience

The conversation surrounding mental health really hits home for me. Many people don't understand how debilitating mental illness truly can be, and even more than that, how common it is, yet people are afraid to have the serious discussions about it. I welcomed the opportunity to be a part of Angst to further the dialogue around mental health and to help people understand the impact anxiety has on our mental state and encourage people, especially kids, to ask for help.
