Our mission.

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. And, we feel called to do something to address the loneliness that people experience in real and profound ways.

Hoovie is our answer.

Hoovie connects people to the movies they crave and the like-minded people who want to watch them. Our mission is to bring people together in meaningful ways using film to spark conversation and connection. Reach out to join us in this work.


Hoovie hosts create possibility spaces for humans to connect and get real. Hoovie films spark conversation and compassion.

A whole new moviegoing experience

Step through the door to the new cinema – where you don’t just watch a movie, but meet people and talk.

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 filmmaker or distributor (depending on the film).

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.
