    RECENT SUCCESS STORY:

    “We screened Pedal Driven and followed it with a silent auction to raise money for a Parks and Recreation Referendum vote. We were able to raise over 50% of the Vote yes campaign’s total budget that night and it passed in the November election. This money will partially go towards capital improvements and our mayor guaranteed COGGS $100,000 per year for the Duluth Traverse. This is additional to the [($250,000] Legacy grant!

    Also, at the movie we had several freeride folks who had been anti-COGGS who attended and it seemed to build a lot of good will and understanding. Everyone who saw the movie enjoyed it and I would say it helped with local relations substantially. Thanks!”

    ~ Adam Sundberg – Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS).

    FAQ

    Q: WHAT KIND OF VENUE SHOULD WE CHOOSE?

    A: Use whatever works for the size group you think you can draw. Pedal-Driven has played at theaters big and small, churches, pubs, a state park, an elementary school, a barn, and even at a knitting factory. Use your imagination, it doesn’t have to be fancy to be a great show.

    Q: HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

    A: Generally speaking, the cost for a screening is $100. Contact Collective Eye Films to find our more and to get your screening license.

    Q: HOW DO WE CHOOSE A DATE?

    A: We suggest you give yourself at least a month to promote your show, and do your best to avoid booking it on the same day as another big event in your town.

    Q: HOW DO WE PROMOTE?

The most successful shows are put on by groups that have members who are actively involved in promoting.

    Q: IS PEDAL-DRIVEN APPROPRIATE TO SHOW TO OUR LAND MANAGERS?
