Here at the Kindling Group we’re all about getting fellow film aficionados together to geek out over great films. No film buff should be left alone to drown in that tempting, isolating world we call “Netflix.”


How Filmmakers Can Rebuild our Media Landscape

It has been a week since inauguration day, and the constant media churn just won’t let up.


Meet the Spring 2017 Interns!


It is our pleasure to welcome a new intern cohort to Kindling Group this spring! Per usual we’ve got a strong crew, bringing experience in video, digital organizing, and television to the table — as well as some a cappella chops, a pet cat, and a ukelele. Our interns will work on both Kindling Group engagement campaigns and post-production, and we can't wait to dive in.

A Message for Our Kindling Group Family


On Tuesday, many of us were blindsided by a new American reality.


Now we must grapple with how and why we didn’t see this week’s major wave coming, and how little we actually know about America’s “flyover country.” There is plenty of blame to go around — for many, the mainstream media sits at the top of the list. We’ve witnessed a refusal to dig deeper, to wrestle with the numbers, to think outside the box, and to look at the barefaced facts. So where does the American public go for a dose of reality?
