The Film Circle's mission is to offer a casual, weekly forum for people to view and discuss indie, foreign and classic films and meet others who share this interest.
We schedule films weekly in the Baltimore area followed by a meal at a nearby restaurant with lively and informative conversation, encouraging attendees to offer their honest critiques.
Your film, venue and schedule suggestions are welcome and encouraged. Just message one of the organizers. We occasionally host private potluck screenings in organizers' homes.
Once you have joined you can click on the scheduled film title to see our linked excerpts to thought-provoking reviews, and trailers for each film we schedule. You will also see the other members who are attending and comments they have made.
In the words of Roger Ebert, "The movies are like a machine that generates empathy. It lets you understand a little bit more about different hopes, aspirations, dreams and fears. It helps us to identify with the people who are sharing this journey with us." This group's purpose is to bring together people to reflect on filmed artifacts of these journeys.
