Watch movies together.

Intimate + Easy + Fair

We’ve discovered that the most meaningful cinema experiences are in intimate settings conducive to conversation – not big-box movie theatres, not at home on our laptops. We also know firsthand how hard it is to make a living as a filmmaker.

So we created Hoovie.

Our platform makes it dead simple to host a film event. Anyone can do it. Anywhere.

We provide the film (tightly curated, pre-licensed), ticketing software and discussion guide; you provide the hummus. Guests connect, filmmakers get paid, and you get to keep or donate your cut.

#humanAF

Hoovie hosts bring friends, neighbors and newcomers together. Hoovie films spark conversation and compassion.

A whole new way to experience cinema

Imagine a movie theatre on every block, in every building, in every home, office and storefront, where you can watch great films and meet new people.

Watch films about the important stories of our time

Hoovie films are curated for their excellence, relevance and ability to get people talking. We’re launching with documentaries and plan to add more genres in the future.

Meet new people as cool as you

Watch the films you crave with kindred spirits in your community. You invite your people, and Hoovie invites new people. (Private events are also possible.)

Support filmmakers to continue making films

Making a living as an indie filmmaker is harder than ever before; the average filmmaker recoups less than half of what they spent to make a film.

Through Hoovie, 30% of every ticket sold goes to the film license owner, which is often the filmmaker. As well, hosts can donate ticket proceeds (50%) directly to the filmmaker.

Make $ or fundraise for a cause

Hoovie offers a fun way to make extra money while building community and supporting filmmakers.

Hosts keep 50% of the “box office” or can choose to donate their cut directly to the filmmaker or a cause aligned with the film.

Hosting a Hoovie is easy

Just choose a film, set your location and ticket price, and let guests book a spot on your couch. (Don’t forget the snacks!)

Anyone, anywhere can host a ticketed film screening.

HOW IT WORKS

Host creates a listing, sets the ticket price and invites their friends.

Guest books ticket via Hoovie.

After the screening, host and guests rate the film, the experience and each other.

TICKET BREAKDOWN

Hosts keep their “cut” from the box office or donate directly to the filmmaker or a cause aligned with the film.
