We invite you to share the Almost Sunrise message of hope with your community. Together we can make a difference!

In the midst of a crisis, Almost Sunrise gives unprecedented access to the lives of two young men returning from war, prompting urgent and necessary national conversation about the way we treat war wounds. Your screening of Almost Sunrise is an opportunity to engage members of your community in a transformative and enriching experience that draws empathy and seeks to unify the civilian-military divide.

Community screenings are now available for a multitude of venues including, but not limited to, schools, libraries, faith-based institutions, corporations, nonprofits, museums, hospitals and government institutions. We provide screening guides and tool-kits to fit your audience to maximize engagement and provide a strong foundation for your screening to meet its fullest potential.
