This is a group where we meet up to watch a documentary, and then have a group discussion of the topics involved afterwards. Initial documentary topics will probably include sustainable living, human society/community, smart use of technology, global challenges to humanity.
The format is either just a discsussion or a combined screening + discussion as outlined at http://influencefilmclub.com/ , who describes their vision as follows:
"Influence Film Club wants more people to watch documentary films and have meaningful conversations about them.
We believe that documentaries is much needed in a world overflowed with information and sound-bites. They provide an opportunity to think, understand, share, and connect with the world on a deeper level.
By watching and discussing docs we create the sparks for influencing the world around us. We help you find great documentaries and ways for you to extend the conversation and get involved, reminding you that a good documentary is just the beginning…
If you want to talk about the things that matter with people that matter then pick a film, invite your friends, and watch and discuss together. It’s as easy as that. Think book clubs, but for documentaries."
