Just as there are authors writing books to inspire us, there are also filmmakers creating films to inspire, inform and connect us with what is happening just outside the Modern Media bubble.
The goal of the Cygnus Candlelight Cinemas Initiative is to create and demonstrate a real demand for transformational films. Films that help reconnect us with all realms of nature and oneness. We are all neighbours embodying many levels of consciousness within the spheres of our shared precious planet. Whether we be exploring the web of consciousness as humans,minerals, animals, vegetables or simply as forces in nature, we all share one world.
The big distribution companies do not believe there is an audience interested in watching inspirational films, so they do not distribute them to Cinemas.
The Grassroots Solution
Jean-Paul Martinez, filmmaker and Cygnus Review subscriber has launched the Candlelight Cinema Initiative with Cygnus. He knows many independent filmmakers like himself. Together, our goal is to have 1000 communities in village halls, schools, cafes and pubs around the world showing films once a month. With this number we can create a sustainable inspirational film community, inspiring audiences and funding film makers through ticket sales. Those who have attended these events have come away feeling more connected to the world around them and inspired to share more.
Join this project in two easy steps.
How do I put on a Candlelight Cinema Event? It’s easy:
Jean-Paul has been working in independent film for many years and has been showing inspirational films to audiences for much of that time. He will be happy to give you his expert advice on selecting the right kit if you do not have access to a projector. This information is also available on the Candlelight Cinema website. The DVD’s can be shown via a laptop with an integral DVD player.
You will need external speakers, projector, projector cable and screen.
Cygnus can send you Free copies of Cygnus Review to distribute at the door with our compliments. Contact Geoff Napier on 07971 856 944.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE NIGHT?
A candle is lit to remind us that we are all part of one source, we all bear that light within us, either side of the screen. The host of the evening introduces the film by telling us a little about the filmmaker and what inspired them to make the film. We watch the film together and then afterwards bring our chairs together into small groups and share what the film has revealed in us. We hope that through these films we can provide a space for you to meet like-minded folk in your locality. You may well meet members from your local Cygnus Cafe group.
List of films all £15.
If you know of any other independently made films that will inspire others, please tell us.
