Occupy Phoenixville is expanding into film, launching their own Films For Action chapter representing the Phoenixville area. We're hitting the ground running with two film screenings coming up in January (more details coming soon). Using this website and regular public film screenings, we're aiming to provide our city with a vibrant, independent alternative to the mainstream media.
Ultimately, our goal is to provide Phoenixville citizens with the information and perspectives essential to creating a more just, sustainable, and democratic society.
Along these lines, our website has cataloged over 900 of the best films and videos that can be watched free online, all dedicated to changing the world.
If you live in the Phoenixville area and would like to get involved in the project, here are several ways you can plug in:
- Contact our chapter coordinator: Carol Kuniholm- firstname.lastname@example.org
- Become a Member on the site. It's quick and easy to join, and after you create an account you'll be able to freely add videos, local events, independent news headlines, original articles and actions. We recommend joining with Facebook if you have an account. Check our guide to adding content for more details on the sort of perspectives and content we're looking to bring to the site.
Tell like-minded groups you know of in Phoenixville about the project, what our mission and goals are, and encourage them to add their events to the community calendar and their group to the group directory.
Have something to say? Join our Phoenixville Blogging Team to write about local issues. Contact us via the Contact page and we'll get you set up.
Spread the word.
