Our innovative hybrid cinema events give you virtual access to our live engagement!

If you can’t join us in person at the Victoria Event Centre in Victoria BC, join the conversation via social media!

In addition to the LIVE webcast of our post-screening discussions, we also have live moderated discussions via both Twitter and Facebook at the same time. It’s a dynamic online engagement thread to the conversation being webcast to the world.

The filmmaker and hand-picked topic specialists are our virtual guests on Twitter, providing you a rich hybrid (live+virtual) engagement experience, accessible from anywhere in the world. Our Twitter ‘tweetchats’ have a reach of up to 120,000 people (according to hashtracking.com). You can also engage via our event specific Facebook groups. We also publish a Storify after each event, which serves as an archive of the hybrid event. Contact us if you’d like more information.

The Twitter hashtag for each event is different: Find out what the hashtag is by checking our website or tweeting @opencinema
