Film Screening May 15th: Sharing an online screening - 04/02/2020

Getting Started – Zoom Help Center

Dear friends and supporters of the First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival Series:

Due to the current stay-at-home orders and the situation with COVID-19, there will be no film screening for April 2020. However--

We will be hosting a "virtual" film party from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesday, April 7th. You're invited to join us via ZOOM to say hello and discuss social justice films past and future.

We will also talk about contingency planning in the event of any ongoing disruptions to our in-person screening events.

FOR EXAMPLE-- It's possible that our MAY 2020 film screening might take on more of a "book club" format, in which we select a film that you can watch at home, at your convenience, then meet via ZOOM on May 5th to discuss that film.

Bring your ideas, bring your own popcorn, and please join us via ZOOM at 7:00pm on April 7, 2020.

You can follow the link below to join the meeting on Tuesday. If you aren't familiar yet with Zoom, there are a number of very good getting started articles on how to set up and use ZOOM on your smartphone, tablet, or personal computer:

Thanks, and let's stay in contact-- from a safe distance!

A special film event being presented by our friends at CitySquare! Please share.

We are proud to help promote this exciting FREE event for our friends at CitySquare!

“City Square's External Affairs Urban Engagement Cinema invites you to an exclusive and free screening of the new film "Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook."

Narrated by Jeffrey Wright,and shot during the 2016 election season, Rigged exposes how our most important right, the right to vote, is being undercut by a decade of dirty tricks and political shenanigans -- from gerrymandering to new voter restriction laws and from wide-scale voter purges to the 2013 gutting of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court.

Join us for a viewing of this phenomenal film, followed by an engaging panel discussion.”

Here is a description from Katy herself:

Katy Drake Bettner is an executive in the entertainment industry having co-founded both Playful Corp with her husband Paul, a game studio in McKinney TX and BetRed Stories, a media company with her friend Amy Redford out of Sundance Utah.

Katy is a member of the Women at Sundance Leadership Council, Women Donor Network, Way to Win, the TED community and serves on various boards including the McKinney Chamber of commerce. The Bettners work best when they have way too much on their plates so Katy is also active in politics and philanthropy while raising 3 kids (10/8/5) and a fluffy dog while splitting time between McKinney and Sundance. (Dark Money, The Infiltrators, Raise Hell: The Life &Times of Molly Ivins, Swallow, Always in Season, Akicita).

[11/06/18]   This evening - 7pm - spend some time with a good film while the election results are coming in!

Our Story

The First Tuesday Social Justice Film series was begun in November of 2005 and started monthly film screenings of socially-relevant films on October of 2006. Over the years we have attempted to present films focusing on important social justice issues of current interest. Our hope is that you'll leave inspired and ready to hit the road in your own quest for a better world.
