A screening of the documentary The Box Truck Film: Building A Reuseful Home is a great way to promote the reuse and tiny house movements to your school, community, non-profit group, neighborhood etc. The documentary focuses on the transformation of a 17-foot moving truck into a 98-square foot tiny house and mobile reuse education center. Using almost nothing but reused, repurposed, and dumpster-dived materials, the duo’s “triumph over junk” showcases the endless benefits of the reuse lifestyle, which are implemented in very creative (and even comical) ways.
We offer numerous licenses based on the size of the audience and if you will be charging for admission. Once the screening is purchased, you will receive a contract for your screening date and also a link to a folder of promotional materials to help make for a successful screening.
Please Note: This screening license purchase is for a digital download version of the film. If you would prefer a copy of the DVD or Blu-Ray, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
"I love that Deek & Alex's film not only shows the process they went through in problem solving and working with found materials, but also inspiring us to make small choices that have a big impact on our waste stream. Being able to see, touch, walk around in the Truck in person is such a great full-circle way to learn how everyday items can be repurposed and reused. Streaming the film followed by the full day of workshops, tours and class visits inspired a lot of students and teachers in our community to be more creative and less wasteful. I think any school community (and any age group) would be incredibly enriched by the kind of programming we had with Deek & Alex." - Belle C. Struck, Art & Sustainability Educator
"The REUSE! Box Truck tiny house is a prime example of how our community can be creative and environmentally responsible by reusing items commonly found in our ReStores. It draws in a new crowd of customers and community partners because of excitement over something new, a real tiny house people can actually tour, and pure curiosity. Alex and the REUSE! Box Truck is an educational resource on wheels that can put some of our regular used ReStore goodies into a new light!" - Emily London, ReStore Operations Manager, Lehigh Valley, PA
Can the director of the film come to my screening?
If you are interested in having the directors / builders of the film attend the screening for a talk and Q&A, please email us at email@example.com.
I can't afford to host a screening. How can I make it happen?
One suggestion that we always make is collaborating with other organizations, schools, businesses, etc. This will make for even a more successful screening, as more people will be promoting it.
There are also sometimes educational grants and funding through individual cities and towns.
Locally, the town hall or local DPW departments are a great resource too, considering it's benefiting them as well.
Another option is banks, as many of them give small sponsorships for events that benefit the community they are in.
How can we raise funds to help pay for the license that we purchased?
REUSE! T-Shirt Sales
A great idea for additional fundraising at the screening and to help people keep the reuse movement going after the film is selling the official REUSE! Because You Can't Recycle The Planet. T-Shirts and patches at the event; all printed on rescued T-Shirts. You will get the shirts at our discounted wholesale pricing. These are sold at most screenings around the country and it's a great way for people to take instant reuse action.
