Let's create a film club on indie and foreign films

I love independant and international films. Anyone else? I'd love to watch the films together, remotly, and then chat about them. Like a book club, but for films.

As inspiration, here's my current favorite director. His whole family has made films that are beautiful and touching.

LMK in the comments if interested and we can form a group chat on what films to watch & discuss!

First meeting is on 2/23 at 5:30pm PST.

Thanks for mentioning this @teresaman! Yes, I saw that one on a plane, it was really fun and a little sad to watch. Overall a really interesting movie! LMK if you'd like to join the discussions, I'm setting up a date and film options we can watch sometime in late Feb.

Hi @iynna, foreign film are really fun to watch bc for me, its like being immersed in another culture so I can learn about how different people live without without the travel to the country itself. If you'd like to join, lmk and I'll include you on the invite for the first meet. I personally did not take any film classes, simply enjoy learning about other cultures through film.
