Movies that Matter

The Human Rights Film Coalition of SWFL Once Again Presents Movies that Matter.

Wednesdays, October 14, 21, and 28. Discussions will be 7-8pm on Zoom. Participants will receive a link to watch each film in advance of the discussion.

Due to the need to socially distance AND theaters being currently closed, this year’s movies will be viewed at home and the panels will take place on Zoom, an internet-based video conferencing platform.

The panels will be made up of people involved with the films and/or the causes addressed in the films. We will discuss how these issues affect Southwest Florida, and how you can help.

Reservations for tickets to the films and Zoom panels are free. You can RSVP at by clicking on “Event Tickets.” After you register, we will send a link to join the discussions you would like to attend. Attendees will be able to submit questions via the “chat” box on their screen.

Sponsorships for all 3 films and panels are available.
Gold Level for $250 and Silver Level for $100.
Each sponsor will be recognized on all promotional emails to our entire email list of over 4,000 households, during each movies’ Zoom panel, and on our website.
