A scene from Mohammad Rasoulof's THE WHITE MEADOWS

We’ve been anticipating today, November 28th, for quite a while now, and it’s finally here!

Global Lens is now on Hulu!

Just yesterday someone asked me, “Where on earth can I see Iranian masterpiece THE WHITE MEADOWS? It hasn’t been released on DVD just yet, and there are no screenings currently booked in my city.”

The answer: You can see it right here. Right this very instant.

Pat Guerra Joins the Global Film Initiative

Introducing GFI’s new Director of Business Development, and the 2.0 of the Global Film Initiative…

Pat Guerra, GFI Director of Business Development

It’s spring, Global Lens is in full bloom, and GFI is growing a new root: Pat Guerra, Director of Business Development.

Pat joins the current band of genius in our San Francisco office, and brings with him a depth and diversity in social enterprise and operations management, and a generous helping of that entrepreneurial spirit we love so much at the Initiative (he is a current member of the venture investment organization, Band of Angels, and also co-founder of the Global Social Benefit Incubator at Santa Clara University–created to help socially-minded entrepreneurs, worldwide, build sustainable, scalable organizations).

The addition of Pat to our staff couldn’t come at a better time, as 2012 is the Global Film Initiative’s tenth anniversary and the year in which we make some interesting, evolutionary changes. So, look for a new website this fall, and before that time, a few new partners–both within the film industry, and nationally and internationally. Also, keep your eye out for an upcoming announcement about Global Lens streaming (Hulu!).

All good changes. And, at the heart of it all, the same Global Film Initiative and Global Lens. Just with a few improvements ;)
