Host a Screening

green-fire-insetSince its premiere in 2011, Green Fire has been shown at thousands of community screenings around the country and the world. Read on to learn how to host your own screening. You can also search our events calendar to find a screening near you.

How long is the film?

There are two versions: a 73-minute director’s cut and a 56-minute public television cut.

How do I get permission to show the film in my classroom or community?

In April of 2020, the Aldo Leopold Foundation launched a free, online streaming option for Green Fire for the first time ever. This must-see, 56-minute film is now available here, along with a suite of additional educational resources, including the “Green Fire Film Discussion Guide.” This film can be shared in the classroom, at public events, via Zoom (through screen-sharing), or with any public audience, with no public screening license required. The full-length 73-minute film will be available soon, too.

Please submit a report to Lauren Graves on the success of your event as a way to document the film’s impact and the growing reach of Leopold’s vision.
