Think book clubs, but for documentaries.

discuss with friends

Documentary film clubs are the heart and soul of Influence Film Club.
We actively support real people having real interactions more often.
Through the power of film, let’s come together and talk about what matters most.

Not sure what film to pick? You can explore one of our playlists
or browse our spotlight for a filmmaker or topic that interests you.

Each month we will hand pick one of our favorite docs as our featured film.
Why not invite some friends over to watch it together? Throughout the month,
starting with our newsletter and continuing on our website and social media,
we will extend the conversation, explore the various issues raised in the film,
provide interviews, suggest ways to Influence and get involved, and contemplate
the power of documentaries- because after all - #welovedocs.

A good documentary is just the beginning...

Powering up an inspiring and meaningful conversation isn’t the most straightforward affair. For this reason, we offer a discussion guide to spark thought and dialogue for each and every film we recommend on Influence Film Club. These guides aim to facilitate discussion amongst a small, intimate gathering of friends, family or colleagues. For a better idea of what this looks like, check out the discussion guide for our films of the month here to see this invaluable tool up close.

Documentaries quite often leave us with many questions, and we at Influence Film Club are ever on the hunt for answers. We pack each film page full of links to related articles, resources, reviews, and the film’s official website and social media so that your post-film journey can be as interesting and in-depth as you so desire.

Sign up to our newsletter below to stay abreast of the exciting revelations taking place in our doc-loving world. Each month we select one of our favorite documentaries to hold the title of “film of the month,” and provide you with everything you need to host a monthly film club. To keep you on your toes we offer up a monthly challenge, and for all you foodies we include recipes related to the film for your club to snack on together, as you sit back and witness these spellbinding stories unfold.
