What we're about

Welcome film/movie fans! - Join us to meet other local Indie & Documentary film fans. Discuss and recommend indi films, documentaries, and other movies to one another.

The idea is to watch the films that pose various moral/ethical questions or expend awareness about different issues that our society and individuals are facing. Therefore we will be focusing on watching Independent or Documentary films rather than watching typical Hollywood movies that are mostly for entertaining purposes.

Choosing documentary films we will primarily focus on the following topics: Personal Growth, Self Improvement/Empowerment, Spirituality, Global Warming, Ecological/Environmental Issues, Sustainable/Green Technologies, Alternative Energy, Corporate/Industrial/Governmental abuse, Ethical/Moral issues, Vegetarianism/Veganism, Genetically Modified Food & GMO, Alternative Healing. However, we are open to any kind of films/movies that raise any ethical and other important topics suggested by our members.

Please feel free to recommend us movies/films that you would like to watch, movies/films that you watched and would like to watch again, or just movies/films that you suggest to watch for others.
