The Wallingford Meaningful Movies group is the flagship location for Meaningful Movies. The very first Meaningful Movies group formed in Wallingford in 2003 and for many years Wallingford Meaningful Movies did weekly and then monthly events. We are looking for volunteers that can help produce and advertise events for the Wallingford location. There are numerous tasks that are associated with putting on a Meaningful Movies event so there are many volunteer opportunities that fit a variety of skill-sets and interests including: managing the AV equipment (for when we are able to do in person events), setting-up and leading Zoom meetings for online community conversations, creating Facebook event posts and other social media advertising posts, writing Public Service Announcements for local radio stations, creating and posting flyers, providing snacks, previewing and recommending movies and more! Even though this is an online opportunity, we hope to eventually have some events in person so if you live in the Wallingford neighborhood or in North Seattle, this would be an especially appropriate volunteer opportunity for you! Let us know if you are interested and tell us something about yourself. You can reach us at info @ meaningfulmovies.org
The Meaningful Movies Project is a non-profit organization that assists neighborhoods, groups and individuals organize, educate and advocate using the power of social justice documentary film and relevant conversation to build positive and meaningful community and a more just and peaceful world.
The Meaningful Movies Project is the organizing arm of a network of independent volunteer-run venues that show social justice documentaries followed by facilitated conversation. We help neighborhoods, groups and individuals produce local film events which use the power of social justice documentary film and facilitated conversation, to build positive and meaningful community and support peace and justice.
The Meaningful Movies Network is a collective of autonomous neighborhood and community Meaningful Movies Groups that have agreed to work together and support one another.
OUR WORK: We help people learn about important issues and bridge divides. By connecting one person to one person at a time, we quickly discover that we are far more similar in our core beliefs than we are different. Film coupled with meaningful conversation is a subtle, yet powerful way to help people recognize these similarities, rebuild a storytelling tradition, foster a vital community dialog and allow true democracy to unfold.
We advocate for public discussion and critical debate in an environment where everyone is free to speak openly without fear. We empower citizens to gather, educate, inspire, connect, and commit to effective, non-violent solutions in building a more peaceful and just world. We encourage and assist communities and organizations in their efforts to become more aware of and critically analyze local, domestic and international social justice issues.
