World AIDS Day Free Screenings

December 1st is World AIDS Day and Outcast Films would like to offer a limited number of FREE SCREENINGS of the film Sex in an Epidemic by long-time HIV/AIDS activist and filmmaker Jean Carlomusto.

Outcast Films is a DVD distribution company dedicated to the fair and equal representation of media made by or about the diverse LGBT community. We are also educators and activists and want to be a vehicle for voices that may not otherwise be heard. Outcast Films outreaches to thousands of teachers, community leaders, activists, policy makers and breakers, institutions, and individuals. Through our efforts, we hope to foster critical discussions around social justice issues, as well as providing the public with a resource of cutting edge films and videos created by and impacting the LGBT community.

As the exclusive distributor of the highly acclaimed film Sex in an Epidemic, Outcast Films would like to give back to the community by organizing FREE screenings of the film for World AIDS Day.

About the Film

By focusing specifically on the need for honest comprehensive sex education, this engaging documentary provides a sociocultural perspective on the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and its ongoing impact on the most effected populations including the gay, African-American and Latino communities. Incorporating interviews and media footage from the earliest days of the AIDS panic through the present, Sex in an Epidemic reminds us that, though the world has been living with the realities of HIV/AIDS for nearly 30 years, ignorance and prejudice about the disease must still be combated.

Here's what we can do to help to get the word out about this very vital message:

  • Waive the screening fee for qualifying groups
  • Send you a DVD for your FREE public screening
  • Send you postcards of the film to help you promote the screening
  • Provide you with any other marketing material or contacts that you may need to make your screening a success such as photos and film clips
  • Help you with marketing and outreach via social networking sites and newsletters

To make your screening the most successful it can be, here's what you can do to help:

  • Organize a public screening to be held on December 1st 2010
  • Send us an email to Enter "Free Sex in an Epidemic Screening" in the subject line then, tell us who you are and when you would like to have the screening.
  • Promote and market the screening to your community including a listing on your website and a link to Outcast Films.
  • Promote your event through social networking sites and to your list of members.
  • Organize a panel discussion after the screening.
