How frequently, when and where are films shown?
It’s early days yet, but we’re thinking of showing one film a month, probably on the last Saturday of each month. During the winter they’ll be shown indoors, Spring and Autumn outdoors. We will probably take a break for the summer (July to September) when it’s too hot and many people are away or have visitors.
The films are shown in members houses, and that’s why we restrict membership to the group. If you’d like to volunteer to host a film then we can provide a projector, sound system and screen.
There will usually be a hat beside the door (or nearby) for a small voluntary donation – a euro or perhaps two. This is to cover the cost of heating (during the winter) and film purchase.
How are films chosen?
Any member can propose three films which they think people would like to watch. The entire membership then votes on which of the three films they wish to see and the film with the most votes is selected.
It’s first come first served in terms of when your proposals are put to the membership. Let Pam, Kerry or Carol know if you’d like your proposals to be scheduled for viewing. You can view the film choices “in the pipeline” here.
What films can I choose?
Please bear in mind that we need to be able to source the films you propose. Therefore please only choose films which are available on:
- Google Play
- A DVD or download which you already own
In the case of (1-3) above the films should be available without using a VPN – in other words, they need to be available here in Greece rather than in some other region.
In terms of film content, it’s up to you. Just bear in mind that some films might prove less appealing than others!
Is it legal?
Absolutely. Everyone within the group is a personal friend of all three organisers, the films are shown in a private venue and there is no profit involved.
