Screen The Film

Do you have a gaming group or college organization that is interested in a screening of Good Game?  You’re in luck, we’re opening up the film to groups who would like to host an event!

Good Game is a 73 minute film exploring the world of professional competitive gaming or esports by following a year in the life of a team of Starcraft 2 pros.  It is a perfect film for gaming groups, Starcraft 2 fans, and indie film groups.  It can provide a great insight into the question of gaming as a sport and gamers as “athletes.”

There are two ways to bring the film to your organization:

Free Admission Screening

If your event will be free and open to the public, then there are only a few rules to follow.

1. You must purchase a screening package for the film, prices listed below.

2. The individuals or group in charge of the screening will agree to handle the advertising for the screening.

3. You must provide requested information about the screening so that we can advertise the event on our social media channels.

4. You must include links to the film’s website (www.goodgamemovie.com) or our distribution website (bit.ly/buyGGmovie) in your advertisements whenever possible.

5. To stress again, these events must be FREE for attendees and must be open to the public.

Closed/Ticketed Events

If you would like to screen the film to a private organization or use the film as part of a fundraising effort, then the following rules apply.

1. You must purchase a screening package for the film, prices listed below.

2. The individuals or group in charge of the screening will agree to handle advertising for the screening.

3. Private events must pay an extra licensing fee, listed below.  If you would like to charge for tickets as a fundraising effort, Good Game and Nine Hour Films only asks for a small portion of the ticket sales.

Q&A Appearance by Filmmaker Mary Ratliff

Would you like to learn more about the film and the world of esports or indie film from Producer/Director Mary Ratliff?  You can bring her to your event for a Q&A in conjunction with screenings, schedule permitting.

For an in person appearance, you must agree to pay for the cost of travel and accommodations for one person to the event location from Washington, D.C.  We promise, as indie filmmakers we are very good at finding cheap travel arrangements so not a dime will be wasted.  For screenings within the D.C. metro area, only a gas reimbursement would be requested.

If you have the ability to do a Skype or Google Hangouts Q&A, Ratliff will be happy to appear (again, schedule permitting) for only a minimal appearance fee.

Fees and Screening Packages:

DVD Screening Package: $25.  Includes one standard edition DVD of the film, a digital press kit including images and logos, and 10 postcards from the film that can be used for in person advertising.  A screening license must be completed and sent to the filmmakers prior to shipment.

Private Screening License: $25. If you do not plan to open your event to the public, you must purchase a private screening license in addition to one of the screening packages above.

Ticketed Screening Agreement: 10% of the ticket sales or $1 per ticket (you choose).  If you would like to sell tickets to your event as a fundraiser for your organization, please request a ticketed screening agreement and state which option you prefer. You must arrange a ticketed screening agreement in addition to one of the screening packages above.

In Person Q&A with Director: Travel from Washington D.C. plus accommodations.
