How to Organize an Educational Screening
- Email email@example.com with your plans so we can help!
- Review the list at the bottom of this page to see if your school already has the Educational Edition. If not, email your school librarian or relevant department, club, or professor with a request to purchase it.
- Find a department or student club to sponsor travel and honorarium for a filmmaker Q&A. Optional but strongly encouraged; our student feedback indicates the post-screening discussion is as important as the film itself. Email our speaking agent Kristin at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Pick a date, time, and venue. We will create an Facebook event page and EventBrite RSVP for you to use along with other materials in our screening kit.
- Spread the word! Posterize the campus, send out newsletters, and (most important) use the "Invite" function on the Facebook event page to "select all" friends in your city to invite. Encourage others to do the same.
- Enjoy the film and encourage everyone to fill out an Impact Survey.
A Letter from Dr. M.D. Kinoti [kenya]
Greetings from Denver, Colorado. I am Kinoti Meme, professor at Regis University and proud Kenyan.
I am writing to encourage you to watch this new documentary film of great importance for those interested in addressing the injustices facing our brothers and sisters living in extreme poverty.
I had the good fortune of seeing POVERTY, INC. at the Starz Denver Film Festival. The film captured me and I have made it my personal mission to do whatever I can to share it, especially amongst my fellow Africans and peoples from LDC countries.
As an Kenyan, as an African, having grown up very poor in a rural village in Kenya, and having worked two decades in the development sector for large multinational NGOs, I cannot stress enough the importance of this film as a vehicle for change. We Africans are finished being stereotyped and objectified, however good the intentions of foreigners may be. The antithesis of traditional poverty media, this film elevates the world class endeavors of enterprising individuals in our countries and highlights the critical need to restore power in the hands of everyday people by democratizing access to networks of productivity and exchange, and by building the fundamental institutions of justice such as property rights, rule of law, and freedom.
On behalf of my fellow Kenyans, Africans, and indeed others from historically challenged countries, I encourage you with full heart and spirit to bring this film to your community by organizing a screening and discussion.
Thank you for your time to read this letter. I do hope you have the opportunity to see and support this film.
M.D. Kinoti, Ph.D | Assoc. Professor & Dept. Chair
Global Nonprofit Leadership Department
Master of Nonprofit Management (MNM)
