This is an informal discussion group for enthusiasts of art cinema and independent films.  I intend to meet twice a month to discuss one particular film at each meeting.  I would like to focus on examples from 1945 to the present, both domestic and international. Most of the films for discussion will come from the Criterion Collection, since it is widely available now via the streaming video services (currently Hulu Plus).

I am neither a film critic nor a film studies scholar, just a casual enthusiast.  If you are interested in watching serious films and discussing their structure and techniques as well as their historical and cultural contexts, I look forward to meeting and learning from you! 

Note:  We are currently discussing films available on Hulu Plus.  If you are interested in the group but are not sure about how to get this service, please contact me and I will point you in the right direction.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
