About Our Virtual Film Series

To our SouthCoast Film Forum friends

We have missed seeing you at our regular festivals and film viewings. Current events have brought us all into a place where we must rethink how we connect and look at the world.

The mission of SouthCoast Film Forum is “to promote the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world.” We aspire to promote listening, learning, and activism for a better world through film.

A better and more just world is on all of our minds at this moment in time.

Virtual Film Series

We have arranged with several partners, including Magnolia Pictures, Bullfrog Films, and Women Make Movies, to stream interesting films direct to you at home. Occasionally we will recommend films or Festivals you can stream independently, such as the recent Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival.

Thank you for your continued support of independent films and the filmmakers, theaters and groups dedicated to presenting them. These Voices Matter.

Stay tuned for future viewing options, while we wait to greet you again in person.

What People Are Saying

I wanted to send a note of thanks – you’ve selected such great films for this moment in history/life.

I appreciate all that you’re doing to sustain a community when we’re not able to enjoy being together in a theatre. I hope this will be different before long, but your efforts are keeping important issues on our screens in spite of the pandemic. It’s important work, and a wonderful challenge to keep us actively seeking ways to contribute to causes for social equity.

Keep ’em coming! Best to you all,

Just want to say how much I’m appreciating the pivot towards films that shine a spotlight on important social justice issues (no surprise there for those in this group who know me, which I think is all of you 😉 Watched the John Lewis film the night before he died, which made it all the more compelling. And have been really looking forward to watching “The Fight.”
