That's right, Films For Action is lucky to be presenting the Midwest premier of the finished documentary film "Within Reach" here in our very own Lawrence, KS!

We're also pleased to have one of the film-makers - Ryan Mlynarczyk - in person to intro the film and do a Q&A with all of us afterwards!

I've personally been looking forward to seeing the final film ever since we hosted the film-makers back in May 2010 during their cross-country biking tour.

This is coming up FAST! So please do what you can to help start spreading the word now so we can make this a premier to remember. :D

$7 admission, going to support the film-makers & Films For Action

**This event happens to be even more special as Ryan's b-day is July 8th, which marks a pretty incredible milestone in his life, after years working to bring us this labor of love.. he'll be sharing the final product for the first time with us, 36 years after the day he was born. Woo!

It's gonna be a fun night.
Be there if you can!

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are unavailable for free. With just 28 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.

Want to become a patron? Subscribe here. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page. 

You're also welcome and encouraged to submit videos directly to our library. Just click +Add Video at the top of the site and paste the video URL to get started. We share our favorite submissions with our fans on social media and feature them more prominently on the site.

Cheers,
