Film Screening checklist - for any screening in the rooms mentioned above
- Arrange for a suitable screening room with the Event Management Office. Plan to coordinate with that office for an appropriate teaching space if your audiovisual requirements for a semester are substantial.
- Contact the Reserve Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to place the DVDs and videos you will be using on reserve for your course. Check here for more reserve info.
- Read the general film screening guidelines.
- Fill out the Film Screening Request form
Film screenings in all other spaces are the responsibility of the faculty or sponsor of the screening. If you would like training on how to use the projection equipment in a space, please call the Helpdesk and we will be happy to arrange a training session. You may also designate a student screeners or assistants and we can help train them, as well. Also, make sure that your film is in a supported format: DVD or Online media are supported as long as you have the rights for screening. VHS is support in most spaces, as well, however VCRs are gradually being removed. Consult this page for more information on the removal of VCRs. For more details on supported formats, please consult the Supported Projection Formats page.
Films and videos from sources outside the College may be booked by contacting Sue Driscoll in LIS at least two weeks before your screening. This will give your group time to reserve a room, promote your film and obtain financing approval.
Student groups wishing to screen a film must work with Student Activities (formerly CCAL) to plan the event. Please see this link for further information: Student Organization Film Screening Process
