Conscious Cinema is a free, public Black-centered social justice film series and dialogue initiative in Long Beach. Film screenings, hosted in locations across the city, will promote dialogue with a diverse audience around social justice issues through stories and lessons from the past, connecting them to movement building and community organizing happening today. Through the arts, using film as a tool for inspiration, participants will connect to one another as a community, explore a greater understanding around the issues as they continue to exist today, and be introduced to ways they can take part in local social change opportunities. Each event will close with a discussion about how the film relates to community engagement and current challenges that Long Beach faces in the present day and time. Lead partners include Hannibal Media Group and Long Beach Forward.
While all events are free of cost, donations are welcomed to help cover the expenses for the venue, refreshments, and other initiative expenses.
Conscious Cinema is intended for a diverse, intergenerational audience, recommended for audiences ages 16 and older, due to mature content (language and violence) recorded during the civil rights movement. Film screening locations are wheelchair accessible.
To become a supporting partner, please contact Melissa Morgan at email@example.com or 562-900-8683. We welcome donations to support the film series so that we can provide it free of charge to the community. Donations can be made online here. Partners are needed to help promote the events and bring audiences to the screenings.
