About Us

CREATE, COMMUNICATE, COLLABORATE
ScreeningRoom has simple online tools all in one place for the lifecycle of independent filmmaking and video content creation.

COLLABORATIVE FEEDBACK MADE EASY

ScreeningRoom offers a simple way for filmmakers to upload cuts and invite team members and screeners to give collaborative feedback right in a timeline.

TOOLS FOR HOSTING SCREENINGS

Use the Theatrical Screening feature to showcase your finished film right on ScreeningRoom. Add a live discussion link to host a remote Q&A after your screening.

Features like commenting will be disabled and your viewers will have a more theater-like experience

SUBMISSIONS & JUDGING IN ONE PLACE

We partner with festivals, grants and award competitions to allow filmmakers to submit their work directly through ScreeningRoom.


GRANT OPPORTUNITIES

We introduced the ScreeningRoom Follow Focus Grant in 2019 with Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions and Points North Institute. We awarded over $15,000 in finishing funds and travel stipends.

USA v. Scott won the Follow Focus Grant in 2019 and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival


A ROBUST COMMUNITY

ScreeningRoom currently has over 8,000 members and continues to grow everyday. Fill out your community profile and connect with other filmmakers and content creators.

We’re always featuring our different members and their projects so that the community can keep growing.

ScreeningRoom was created by an award-winning independent filmmaking team who are motivated to help build sustainability in the independent filmmaking and content-creating community. We launched ScreeningRoom at Hot Docs in 2016 and have been growing and developing new features since.

We welcome your ideas and your support!
