Host a Community Screening

Would you like to host a screening of Agniyogana at your yoga studio, community center or private event? With our new Community Screening License, Agniyogana can be seen anywhere in the world, at the time and date of your choosing. With the license, you will get a link to the film as well as a discussion guide to help you facilitate a dialogue with your community after your screening if you wish. To apply for a license, please read the details below and confirm that you agree to the points listed.

If you are interested in having Emma Balnaves, the filmmaker of Agniyogana attend your screening in person and be present for a question/answer session afterwards, this is possible with a Premium Licence. It is subject to Emma’s availability in your region. For further information kindly email us at communitylicense@agniyogana.com.
