What we're about

Want to see great documentary films . . . followed by discussion . . . free of charge . . . every month? We believe this is the only documentary film series in Baltimore that is open to the public and free of charge. (We appreciate and encourage donations, but they're optional).

We purchased a license from the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation.

Always on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm in downtown Baltimore.

The current batch of upcoming films are all all academy award nominees - or winners. After the viewing, we'll have a discussion, usually with a local expert or advocate on the particular topic to lead the discussion.

The series is hosted by the Baltimore Ethical Society in a beautiful viewing space, with free street parking. Refreshments (beverages and snacks) are free, and other food is available for purchase. We'll take food orders (delivery pizza, etc?). We can eat while we watch. So bring a couple of bucks in case you get hungry.

We may also use this site to occasionally announce a separate discussion series, without films, on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am in the same location. Also with food, and also free of charge. These are presentations by local experts or advocates on a topical issue, followed by Q & A. These Sunday presentations are preceded by an introduction and brief announcements by the Baltimore Ethical Society, and followed by Q & A, then time to mingle, to enjoy snacks, and to speak with the presenter.
