Gratitude Revealed

Join Encircle Films in celebrating its 11th season with a screening of Gratitude Revealed, followed by a reception honoring the community and board members who have helped this series flourish for more than a decade. Gratitude Revealed is an epic journey forty years in the making. Acclaimed filmmaker, Louie Schwartzberg, the director of Fantastic Fungi, takes us on a transformational, cinematic experience of how to live a more meaningful life full of Gratitude through his intimate conversations with everyday people, thought leaders, and personalities such as Norman Lear, Jack Kornfield, Luisah Teish, Alex Grey and other luminaries.

Art House (formally The Bijou) will be our home (again). We began our journey bringing documentaries to Eugene 10 years ago at The Bijou, then moved to The Metro theater 5 years ago, and now we’re coming back to the Bijou’s new incarnation as Art House. We appreciate your loyalty in moving with us and we’re excited about the better viewing angles for all theater seats, improved sound system for panel discussions, and a lobby and courtyard that facilitates conversations before and after the films that Art House provides. And we’re thrilled to continue to support general manager Edward Schiessl as he creates a venue dedicated to community events. Check out the July 13th Eugene Weekly article here for more details about Art House.

Season 11 Films Encircle Films Board of Directors met in July to plan our film screenings for Season 11. After previewing many films over the past months (and lots of discussion), we’ve selected films to show through December and tentatively selected films to take us through June 2024, the end of Season 11. We’ll be posting the Fall line-up on our website soon. As always, we’re committed to bringing important documentaries to the Eugene community that uphold our mission to “inform and inspire action”. We’re very excited about the films we’ve selected for you.

September Film and Special Event Mark your calendars! Thursday, September 21st, 6:30PM, for the uplifting film “Gratitude Revealed”. To celebrate our move to the Art House, and to honor our loyal audience members, along with retiring board members, we’ll host a reception with snacks and refreshments after the screening. Tickets can be purchased HERE!

Be sure to check out the Act Up! pages for all of the Season 10 films. They are full of excellent resources for each of the films shown this past season. Access HERE! or from the main website navigation bar.

Encircle Films is partnering with Norman Solomon in distributing his new book, “War Made Invisible: How America Hides the Human Toll of Its Military Machine.” More information can be found on our Partners & Sponsors page HERE!
