What we're about

When you sign-up, please include a full face profile photo so we can recognize you when we are at an event -- or no photo at all if you are concerned about your online privacy. This is a REQUIREMENT to be admitted.

We are viewing together films -- including documentaries -- that are "mainstream" [rarely] or "classic" or "independent" or even "different". Always accompanied by a discussion which follows a certain format. We meet in local movie theatres (like the Broad), cultural centers (like Zeitgeist), libraries (like Mid-City branch), people's homes around the Greater New Orleans area, or even outdoors using a wall and a projector. Online viewing -- like Youtube clips, Kanopy, Netflix -- and the better television programs -- like PBS, BookTV -- are parts of our offerings.

As not to make anyone uncomfortable or shocked (except those who enjoy "shocking", of course), there is a warning for any program that is definitely not mainstream, "weird", "offensive", whatever. On the other hand, we are totally into the BFI list of films to see before turning 14.
