What's a Screening Salon?

Film and other screened contentn has the power to connect to ideas and each other. Christine creates an open, authentic space in which the content becomes a bridge for members to discover and activate.


Here, we are all 'experts', adding our unique ingredients into the mix... as speakers and active listeners.   

There is NO COST to attend, and we invite you to join us soon!​​

*Note:  The theme of the series was Connection & Belonging and the Featured Guest was Gabriel Diamond of Outside Films and the Skoll Foundation.

He shared his film Less with us.

  • Themes serve as a bridge for connection. The purpose of these screening salons is to build community and create ripples.  

  • Whether in person or online, each salon is like picnics or dinner party with a special guest or two. Everyone is welcome to add their contributions in the salons and beyond.

  • The difference is that the main course is screened content instead of food.

  • Featured Guests --  In the past we've hosted directors, producers, directors of photography, score composers as well as actors and others who appear on-screen. 

  • Salon Participants -- You'll meet thought leaders, do-ers, change makers and people like you. They come from both coasts and in between... and as far away as Lebanon, Pakistan and Australia.​

  • Online salons often take place on Tuesday evenings, usually from 5 - 6:45pm Pacific Time / 8 - 9:45pm ET.  (Each salon needs to be booked separately, even if you book and entire series.)

  • Reserve in advance.  Once a salon begins, no further reservations can be taken.

  • Salons usually last a bit over 1 1/2 hours.   Join us 15 minutes early for the Meet and Greet, to settle in and for an on-time start. 


  • Each salon stands on its own, though the series format allows for a progressive experience over time. 

  • Screened content ranges from feature films and rough cuts to shorts, music videos, public service announcements and more. 

  • The last salon of each series is a 'closing salon' for a deeper dive into the theme and our experience of it.  

  • Talk time vs. screening time might vary, and programs are subject to change given the nature of life... and opportunities which might arise.

  • Online salons take place in Gallery View on Zoom.  In-person salons can be anywhere...  cinemas, private screening rooms, etc.
