Host a Screening

Our vision in producing Numen is to inspire viewers to think deeply about the sources of their medicine and how their healthcare choices affect themselves and the larger web of life. We hope to bring the same awareness to medicine that the organic food movement has brought to food.

Join the hundreds of herbalists, healers, parents, policymakers already sparking discussion with their family, friends, and neighbors by organizing a screening today!

Use the film as a catalyst for conversations about designing sustainable systems of healthcare in your communities.

Screenings are great fun and surprisingly simple to host. Sign up at the Working Films Screening site: This will lead you through the steps to purchase your license, sign your screening up, and promote your film through easy on-line sharing tools.

Our downloadable community screening toolkit will guide you through the steps to creating a successful screening in your community.

A Word about Screening Licenses

It is extremely expensive to produce a film. Screening licenses help filmmakers recover some of the investment in producing a film and help cover the ongoing costs of organizing outreach and engagement campaigns. We have worked hard to come up with a range of screening licenses that we hope will suit your needs and that honor our investment. Please contact us if you have any questions or aren’t sure which license you should purchase.

Your purchase of the film supports our further outreach—thank you in advance!
