Educate and Inspire People,

Host A Screening!

Community (public) screenings of In the Name of Confucius film is one of the most efficient ways to spread the word about the issue of Confucius Institutes, spark discussions, and mobilize actions in your community.

A successful example is a screening held in Boston on March 1, 2018, where nearly 200 people watched the film in a theatre and got in-depth understanding of the issue after the Q&A discussion with film director Doris Liu. The organizers collected about 200 petition signatures for their campaign and raised nearly $2,000 dollars of donation to offset the cost.
