FAQ

HOW DOES SIMA RAMA WORK?

Its simple:

  • One stunning, hand-picked documentary goes live at noon on the first Sunday of every month, and is available to watch for one week.
  • During that week members have access to ACTION KITS (curated for each topic our films spotlight), where they can take + add collective actions, crowdsource solutions and post questions for the filmmakers and panelists.
  • On Thursday at 11:00 am (PST) that same week, audience questions are answered in a live 30-minute panel with thought-leaders, film subjects and filmmakers, followed by an open discussion in our Facebook forum. TOP ACTIONS are published at the end of each month to track and scale our impact.

 

WHERE IS IT?

Cyberspace! SIMA RAMA is a completely digital film club. Even the panels are hosted online.

WHAT ARE CURATED, CROWDSOURCED and TOP ACTIONS?

Every month we recommend and curate action tools (our staff picks of vetted ways to get involved) that are highlighted in each films action kit. Members can add actions and resources to our lists, crowdsourcing knowledge and solutions that give us even more opportunities to get involved. We then publish the top actions taken by members each month in our newsletter and Facebook forum to track and amplify our communities impact.

HOW CAN I SEE PANEL DISCUSSIONS AND ACTION KITS FROM PREVIOUS FILMS?

All panel videos and action kits are archived on the SIMA RAMA site so you can access them anytime.

HOW ARE THE FILMS CHOSEN?

We select award-winning films from the annual international SIMA Awards. Obviously, we can’t talk about every social issue every month (as much as we’d like to) but with access to the most relevant stories and most powerful filmmaking from over 140 countries, we are sure to bring you the greatest contemporary impact cinema.

WHY WE RAMA?

We screened SIMA films across 6 continents for the past 5 years, witnessed the demand to build a global digital-community around today’s most pressing issues, and asked ourselves: What if people around the world saw the same doc each month and crowdsourced solutions to the issue it illuminates? We are here to find out.

WHAT ARE THE MEMBERSHIP FEES?

$5 per month (first month free) – or – $55 a year.

WHAT DOES THE MEMBERSHIP FEE COVER?

It covers the cost of film rights, staffing, platform and club management. SIMA (Social Impact Media Awards) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Los Angeles, California dedicated to advancing cross-cultural understanding, human rights and education by supporting and amplifying the works of content creators on the front-lines of social change. In short, your membership pays filmmakers and helps an awesome nonprofit catalyze the power of impact cinema worldwide.

CAN I CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP?

If you’ve paid annually, no refunds will be issued so feel encouraged to make this club your own for all things cinematic stimulation and global activism.
