Camden’s Points North Institute and Doha Debates recently launched Solutions Cinema, a collaborative initiative that will kick off this month with a series of free virtual film screenings and summit-style interactive discussions. The discussions will be held Thursdays in April from noon to 1:30 p.m., beginning April 8. Registration is required and most featured films have limited spaces available.

The virtual summits will explore story-driven strategies for social change. In addition to film directors and subjects, each session will feature participants including lawyers, elected officials, academics and activists. Students, educators, filmmakers and film industry professionals will also be invited to contribute to the conversation.

The first program will be presented in four parts and will include the screening of 12 feature and short documentary films. Selected films have been curated to stimulate conversations — each highlights individuals addressing injustice and inequity through community organizing, politics, education, media-making and the law. They include two recent Sundance award-winning titles, “Homeroom” and “Writing with Fire.” The program also includes several short films recently produced by Doha Debates.
