Hey my CS family!

My name is Alexandra and I am the Director of "One Couch at a Time", which is the first full-length feature ever to document our amazing network of CouchSurfers (and the New Age of Sharing we are entering! Two years in the making, I can't believe that the film is finished and out there, and people actually seem to LOVE IT!

TRAILER OF THE FILM: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6KXs978mAM

"What would you Share with a Stranger?" is the theme of the film, and what I am asking you right now as we are gearing up to create a 1,000+ screenings in every major CouchSurfing City so we can get back to the true ethos of the CouchSurfing spirit!! As CS is growing and changing, it now more important than ever to invite the new and veteran CSers to come together and remember/discover what CouchSurfing is REALLY about and what amazing possibilities arise when we share and open our lives to strangers!The film is 100% CS funded, created, and now screened!

WE want EVERYONE who wants to see the film to see it regardless of funds! Hence, this is a donation only screenings (as we incurred a lot of costs we still need to pay back) BUT ANYONE CAN COME!

The reactions are more than I could ever ask for & these screenings are so inspiring and FUN! Casey Fenton (brainchild of CS) calls this documentary "...the most authentic CouchSurfing film....energetic, authentically produced CouchSurfing film I've seen.." and thousands of CouchSurfers who have viewed this film also agree:



Not trying to brag, haha, ... I’m just trying to get amazing CouchSurfers like you interested in HOSTING A SCREENING of "One Couch at a Time" as part of our 1,000 SCREENING CS Tour! I promise it will be an inspiring and FUN evening to remember!! CouchSurfing newbies, veterans, or those "Couch-curious" folks are ALL invited!

As you can see by our past screenings, they can be in apartments, lofts, homes, beaches, rooftops, parks, or wherever you can get a portable projector and white screen (or wall). We’ve done International Drink nights where everyone brings drinks to represent their country to panel discussions! You can have 10 people or 200 people - its up to you!

Have you or anyone you know hosted a film screening before? Know anyone who has a projector or BIG TV who would want to? If you have the place or are inspired to make this night happen, please email us!

Please email me at “info@OneCouchataTime.com and we will get you a SCREENING KIT with a FREE digital download/DVD, links to posters and flyers, and anys upport/advice you need to make this an unforgettable evening! Then we will add your to our Screening Calendar & you are all set to make history with us!

Hey lovely European CSers!

Hoi Alexandra,

Great to hear the movie is finally finished!

Would love to show it to friends/familiy and other couch surfers staying over at my house once I get my free copy (digital or dvd) as agreed during the funding periode!

About creating a event here in town I may get the ball rolling and will contact the local arts centre. If everything goes ok maybe I can arrange it.

Hope lots of people see it!
