Personally, I enjoy watching films in public because I like to see and hear others' reactions — especially when a room is filled with laughter. We recently kicked off a film series at our New York City Action Center to End World Hunger. On the last Wednesday of each month — for a donation of just $10 — viewers can learn about a specific global issue while sampling free beer (donated by the Brooklyn Brewery) and wine. Following the films, a discussion is facilitated by an expert in the industry so that viewers can deepen their knowledge about the subject of the film. There's also ample time to ask questions.
If you are interested in participating from afar, check out the films the Action Center has already showcased: "The Other Side of the Water" and “Blue Gold: World Water Wars". The next film will be on April 28 at 7 pm — we will be showing “The Burning Season”, a story about deforestation in Indonesia and carbon trading.
