How To Host a Screening

Across the land we are receiving an overwhelming response from audiences who are riveted by the message in Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life.
These audiences are energized to make changes in their own lives which in turn change our culture.
By hosting a screening of  Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life you can participate in shifting the consciousness around cancer.
Thanks to our viewers, Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life is no longer just a film. In December, we are formally launching Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life as a social health action campaign to empower cancer awareness, challenge limiting beliefs related to cancer survival and fully realize one’s potential. Hundreds of organizations will participate in a series of small forums which help lead to a cultural and sociological change.

You can host your screening of the film for FREE!
Give your students, members and friends the tools to understand the keys of mindbody connection. Empower them to be as healthy as they can be, offer them a good jump start on a cancer free life.

Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life takes an eye-opening look at the mindbody relationships that make possible health and healing, as well as creating the best context for collective health and well being. That permits facing the increased incidence of cancer in young people as well as learn to prevent it.
We also offer a very engaging interactive workshop presentation utilizing documentary footage, live interaction, roleplays, dance, art making, games and deep inquiry to give the experience of how small changes can make huge differences in the desired outcome of health.

Hospitals, Patient´s Groups, Conferences, Colleges, Schools and Educational Institutions, Non-profits, Faith based Organizations, government entities, and local businesses around the world are organizing screenings.

Here are the first steps to consider in organizing your screening(s):

0. Choose a Screening Date

1. Envision the kind of screening you’d like to host. How big or small do you want it to be? What dates would work? What other activities would you like to include?

2. Partnerships can be extremely helpful when putting on an event. Partners can help promote the screening to different outlets, sponsor the event with products or cover other costs, as well as share the workload. Who might make an appropriate partner?

3. Sponsorship is a smart thing to research and consider in the beginning of your planning process, especially if you hope to host a large event. Know your costs before you seek monetary or in-kind sponsorship. Look to businesses who would benefit from reaching your event’s attendees or ones with whom you have established relationships.

4. Financials/Ticket Sales/Proceeds.* We encourage you to sell tickets to your Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life screening. Not only do people value what they pay for, but even a $1-2 ticket price will help you recoup your licensing costs. If you bring in more, you can donate the proceeds to one of your local non-profits, or to us to fund courses for cancer patients that cannot afford them. Visit our TOCTOL Activist Program for more info.

5. Securing your screening location. Think outside the (theater) box! Consider churches, schools, campus classroom, center or theater, independent theater, public library, community center, religious institution or local hall, auditoriums, town halls, and sides of barns, community rooms, patients groups…
Often theaters are not the best place to share Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life. They are frequently expensive and don’t necessarily support engaging or long discussions.
Compare prices; check availability; ask if food can be served on location; confirm the duration of your rental agreement, (book for at least 3 hrs); request an in-kind donation for some or all of the cost.

6. Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life’s Director, Edivia Navarro, is available for interviews. We encourage you to Invite her along for Q&A and break-out session. This is a 4 hour session including the screening.
If you would like to arrange something for the press leading up to your event, you have some media materials. Also  let us know and send us clips of your events so we can post it  at the community page.

Edivia is also available for speaking engagements (in person or via Skype) after the screening. Email  or  for schedule and pricing.

9. Invite a guest speaker or organize a panel to led a post screening discussion. Contact a local health practitioners or cancer survivors to share their experience with those issues, an Environmental Studies professor or grassroots person, whatever will best suit your event.

10.Everyone loves to snack during a movie. If possible have fresh, organic, raw food, so we can start leading with the example offering local fare supports the local economy – exactly what Turn Off Cancer/Turn On Life is about! Have a recycling bin visible & be mindful of keeping waste to a minimum.

The conversation is an excellent tool for both students and the public to examine the paradigm of health and medicine and create consciousness to prevent cancer, an epidemic that will affect one in two men and one in three women in their lives time.
Audiences explore where they must play and interplay personally, politically, economically, socially, psychologically, and spiritually to walk together on the path to become healthier individuals in healthier communities.

Thank you for being an integral part of Change!

Turning Off cancer celebrates the doctors, thinkers and patients across America who are reinventing our health system.
We have witnessed the rapid transformation of our health system into an industrial model, and now we are confronted with the consequences: patients treated as numbers, inhuman medical care, costly and inefficient treatments, unaddressed deadly live styles, artificial body-mind split that robs us of our most powerful resources, food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid pharmacological corporations that decide even how our doctors are trained.
The movie presents robust scientific research on the effects on healing of the mental and emotional states of the patients.
Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, the film offers a practical vision for a future of our health system, a new paradigm that takes under consideration the untapped powers of the mind and our relational lives to build healthier individuals in a healthier planet.

Complete credits & bios available online.
