Leaflet flyers for The Cove screening at 2nd Saturdays Downtown

During the popular 2nd Saturdays Downtown event, we're leafleting flyers for the next free veg film screening, The Cove, that screens Jan 14th 7pm @ the Loft Cinema. 

UPDATE: The vegan director who was scheduled to come out is no longer able to due to an invitation to Sundance. The hope is that we can screen his next film in the near future, The Heist: A Bold Mission To Save Species on the Brink, and have him attend that showing.

The leafleting is still happening, we just have new flyers without the director listed.

Free movie screenings are a unique and fun thing to leaflet, as in the past with other films - tons of people will be thankful for the invite and many will attend, seeds will be planted, and people will be inspired to learn more about this important issue. 

Lets first meet at Sparkroot ( all-veg restaurant with great vegan options ) for some food / beer / coffee / tea at 6:45pm, hang out for 20-30 minutes and discuss our approach, then leaflet for an hour or two ( or as long as you like ), we can take a breaks and head back to Sparkroot, and afterwards maybe find something fun to do. Sparkroot is right on Congress where 2nd Saturdays take place.

We'll be pairing up and passing out flyers on the sidewalk. Here's what the double sided flyer looks like: http://veganfeed.com/meetup/cove-flyer.jpg

Stay tuned for some more great films in early 2014!

      Are we still meeting at sparkroot at 645??

      January 11, 2014

      Yep 6:45. Hilary will be looking for you guys. If the upstairs is too busy for her to grab table, just look around for her downstairs.

    I am no longer able to attend this but you will be in good hands with Hilary who will be heading it up and bringing the flyers. She's leafleted flyers at 2nd Saturdays for the free screenings before, not to mention leafleted vegan/AR material on her own numerous times. Deb and Sarah also have done this before and you can pair up so you're not alone, which also makes it easy to approach people from both directions.

    It's all very easy and within minutes you'll all get the hang of it - people will be very receptive of these flyers, get ready for lots of Thank Yous as you offer them a flyer and say "Free movie screening at the Loft Cinema".
