Host a screening in Your Town!​

Inspire and rally your community with a local screening of the Better Cities Film Festival.  

It’s a dynamic way to spark imagination and change the conversation in your hometown. We have a few options: You can screen the BEST OF FEST – a 75 minute reel of our most award-winning and acclaimed short films.  Or, opt for the CUSTOM CURATED reel:  you’ll get a conference call with founder and director Josh Paget to discuss issues facing your community, and together you’ll create a custom playlist of the most relevant films from our vast archive of over 700+ films. 

If you’re all in, you can select the BETTER CITIES MARATHON optionyou’ll get the BEST OF FEST reel, and enough custom curated content to run a schedule of films from noon matinee to midnight screening.

Our Festival Director, Josh Paget, is here to help.

After bootstrapping the festival in Los Angeles, producing it for five consecutive years, and facilitating satellite screenings in over 30 cities, Josh is an invaluable resource for host city events. From programming to technical AV, from guerrilla marketing to social media hype, we offer guidance on every aspect of a festival screening.
