Cyberspace! SIMA RAMA is a completely digital film club. Even the panels are hosted online.
Every month we recommend and curate action tools (our staff picks of vetted ways to get involved) that are featured and packaged for each film. Members can add actions and resources to our list, crowdsourcing knowledge and solutions that we highlight in our facebook forum and publish each month as part of our Almanac of Activism.
All discussions and actions are archived on the SIMA RAMA site so you can access them anytime.
You don’t need a Facebook account to become a member – HOWEVER – you will need one in order to participate in the online forum + panel.
Once you sign up, you will receive a link to join the group at the email you signed up with.
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.
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.
