At the beginning of 2020, Meaningful Movies Project was operating as usual, supporting our venues in showing 38 in-person films and discussions. In March, when COVID-19 became widespread, all of our venues canceled or postponed their in-person events. Since then, many venues have hosted virtual screenings and discussions, which has been an exciting new venture. Below are highlighted a couple of success stories of online events.

On April 9, Mt. Baker Meaningful Movies hosted a virtual discussion of the film “Activized.” The director and producer Eric Stange and producer Marga Varea joined the discussion and talked about their experiences collecting the activists’ stories and making the film. The discussion served as an antidote to the disconnect many are feeling right now. We had 25 participants join the meeting. One of the benefits of online events is that people from all over can join. We had folks join from Seattle, SeaTac, Tacoma, Spokane, and the filmmaker and producer from Boston, MA.

The Meaningful Movies Sustainable Ballard venue showed “The Story of Plastic” on April 27 and partnered with Zero Waste Washington. The online event had panelists from the Seattle Aquarium, Re Sources, and Puget Soundkeeper Alliance. The event had 33 guests join. The discussion was a great connector for folks that are passionate about environmental activism who are feeling disconnected in these disorienting and sometimes disheartening times.

We hope you can join an upcoming virtual event. Please email hunter@meaningfulmovies.org with any questions.
