Priced Out is headed to California next month for a screening and discussion sponsored by Housing Long Beach. Producer Cornelius Swart will be flying down to talk with residents of Long Beach, California. This city just south of Los Angeles has, like Portland, seen massive rent increases and apartment development in recent years, and has been grappling with implementing rent control. Check out a discussion on the BATTLE FOR LONG BEACH RENT CONTROL, this Thursday on the Priced Out Podcast.

RENT REFORMS NEED YOUR HELP
Commissioner Chloe Eudaly plans to advance a package of rent reforms this month at city council. These reforms include pro-renter changes to laws governing security deposits and credit checks. If you are looking to support local efforts to stabilize renters, contact Eudaly's office to find out what you can do. CONTACT: Josiah Barber, Constituent Relations Specialist

HOW YOU CAN HELP THE FILM
Tell a friend to sponsor a show!
Even though this is a local feature film about Portland’s most pressing social issue, we are continually surprised by the number of people who are not aware of the film. So if you know someone who might be interested in sponsoring a screening, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you seen priced out?
Please RATE US on our IMDb page. The more ratings we get, the better—unless you hate the film, then please delete this email immediately.
We encourage you to please POST A SHORT REVIEW on our IMDb page as well. It’s a huge help for our online profile as we push to get the film seen in more communities outside of Portland.
Have you purchased the film or hosted a screening?
We are always in need of dynamic pull quotes from educators, professionals, and community groups that have used the film. Please send us a quote of one to two sentences to email@example.com.
We’re happy to announce that we have reached a distribution deal with Collective Eye, a boutique distribution house for the institutional market. Collective Eye is an excellent group of cool and creative young folks who come from filmmaking backgrounds. They carry very high-quality films, so it’s an honor to be in their catalog. And best of all, they’re Portland locals!
Collective Eye will come on board in September, which means we will have to increase our prices to comply with their standards. So if you know professors, teachers, or someone who might want to purchase the film or be interested in screening it, please send them to us now while prices are still low. PricedoutMovie@gmail.com
Thank you for all of your support for this project and your concern about this number-one issue facing American cities today.
Let’s keep the conversation going—LOUDLY!
