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.
  • On that same day, the film’s Action Kit goes live, where you can post questions for the filmmakers and panelists, join members worldwide in taking collective action, and dive into each film’s social issue via curated resources.
  • On Thursday at 11:00 am (PT) that same week, member questions are discussed in a live 30-minute panel with thought-leaders, filmmakers and experts, bringing you up-close to those on the front-lines of what’s happening.

 

WHERE IS IT?

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

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

All panel videos, and kits are archived on the “Action Kits” page 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 and witnessed the demand to build a global digital community around today’s most pressing issues. We 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 access to our monthly featured films, action kits, and panel discussions, in addition to providing the cost of film rights and platform 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.

WHAT IS THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM?

There are amazing people and organizations at work to change this world for the better through a myriad of initiatives in art, education, direct services and trainings. We invest in them through our Affiliate Program, where our nonprofit partners get a unique AFFILIATE CODE to share with their networks, and receive $5 for every usage of this code with a yearly SIMA RAMA subscription. To become or refer a partner, please contact us
