You can ask that each person says just their name & where they're from + how they heard of the event. You can ask them to add whatever they want to say about themselves, but ensure they keep it short & don't 'take over' time-wise.
Of course it's important to have breaks where people can stretch, use the toilet & get something to eat or drink (depending on the venue & your group, if you ask everyone to bring food to share it becomes more of a party!) + chat informally with others, so that people have plenty of opportunities to make new friends, also. This is most useful after doing more formal introductions.
It's very useful to have a 'tidy ending' to the event (before socializing afterwards) by doing a 'closing circle' where you ask people to repeat their name, say something new they learned from the screening, something they liked, something that could be done better next time.
And take notes: that's your evaluations so you can design an even better next event!
