This is an ACTIVE Meetup Group... if you are sensitive to being invited to our events, please note that we schedule about 4-8 events a month.
We try to keep emails down to the announcements of the actual movies, and then only to those that RSVP "yes" to a specific event.
Other than that, I try to not send out more than one mass non-event email every few months.
Our basic mission: To see significant and/or interesting films playing in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and then to go somewhere close by afterwards to eat, drink, share company and discuss the films we just watched.
The philosophy of the BAFS is to allow a network of wonderful Assistant Organizers to thrive and coordinate film outings at least every other week. Our goal is that this horizontal arrangement can continue, and that potential member hosts will schedule outings in the South, East and North Bay.
My personal hope is that this group will continue to meet the needs of all members, no matter the type of movie each is personally interested in. I believe in empowering people to make the group what they want, so I am very generous in applying the assistant organizer position to those who request it. All I ask is that the events are Bay Area based, movie specific, and do not cost anything above theater admission prices to attend.
Also, be sure to check the Message Board periodically for various pertinent announcements, freebies, etc.
Welcome to the Bay Area Film Society!
