Mary Meets Mohammad had a successful cinema and community screening tour in 2013 and has been making a positive social impact. The film also became a 2013 Walkley Award finalist which was also very rewarding.
Standard DVDs, Blu-ray, short version DVDs and Outreach packages are now on sale directly form the Mary Meets Mohammad website. Single DVDs are $30. Please follow the link on: www.marymeetsmohammad.com
Mary Meets Mohammad Outreach Packages – 4 DVDs for $99
The idea behind the Mary Meets Mohammad Outreach Packages is, if you feel inspired to help the go further, keep one DVD for yourself, and give three copies away to people who might benefit from seeing the Mary Meets Mohammad story.
Storytelling is a very effective and powerful tool for transforming negative attitudes towards asylum seekers, into positive, socially cohesive viewpoints. The film has proven this over the last year of screenings which has been very inspiring.
On sell the DVDs as a fundraiser for your organisation
If your church or organisation would like to sell the DVDs, a wholesale rate of 20% less than the $30 retail price can be arranged, for a minimum purchase of 8 DVDs. You can raise $6.00 per $30 DVD sale.
Host a Community screening with free licence fee or Host a Fundraiser Screening
A dream I have is that the film might show in every parish of every church denomination across Australia. I know as a result of the 2013 screenings that the Mary Meets Mohammad message, promoting a common humanity and instilling the values of love and compassion, is changing many minds and hearts. You may want to help inspire other churches and schools to host a screening.
You may be interested in a blog that Tasmanian Anglican Bishop John Harrower, who is in the documentary, wrote about the film.

New change this year: There is no screening licence fee for any bookings that are free entry screenings. You simply need to register your wish to host a screening online. We will receive your request and approve it before you’ll then be able to download poster files and publicity that will assist you in promoting your event.
If you would like to make a fundraiser event out of your screening, you keep 70% of the ticket sales, with Waratah Films receiving 30%. You will need to sign a screening licence agreement with Waratah Films beforehand.
You might want to host a screening for Refugee Week for the 15th to 21st June?
You can also sell DVDs at your event and raise a further 20% on every DVD sale, and hopefully encourage more community screenings.

There is a Study Guide that accompanies the film and is mapped to school curriculum.
The Study Guide is best suited to Years 9 to 12 for screening with the full 81 minute feature film. The shorter 26 min version of the film can suit Grade 6 upwards. Hundreds of teachers have used the film with English, Geography and History curriculum. Some schools have hosted a screening for the whole school at a school assembly.
Please recommend the film to your teacher friends. The film has also been used with universities, church groups and other community organisations. You can download the Study Guide here.
