ILLUMINATE is launching a year-round CineMatters Series


ILLUMINATE is launching a year-round CineMatters Series, a curated collection of single night screenings of the year’s best conscious films paired with exciting events, immersive Reel Healings, illuminating panels and/or spotlight guests.


Additionally, in 2019, we will launch a digital screening series of conscious films for our global membership.


While I’m on sabbatical, our wonderful and capable managing director, Morgan Richmond, will take the reins, and our passion-fueled ILLUMINATE Dream Team will continue to bring you the world’s most transformational films.

Today we announce our first CineMatters event of the season, “Women’s Voices in Action,” a statewide call to action for women’s empowerment, to take place Friday, January 11th, 2019.


The event features the Arizona premiere of the film This Changes Everything, which garnered rave reviews and standing ovations from audiences and critics at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. This revealing and timely documentary explores the fight for gender equality in Hollywood through the incomparable voices of women including Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, executive producer Geena Davis and others of the Time's Up and #MeToo Movements. 

​The day will include a post-screening discussion with director Tom Donahue and producer Ilan Arboleda, an ActionSpace for signup and activation opportunities with women’s groups from across the state, and a Member/VIP reception.  A lunch entitled Women’s Voices in Action Luncheon: Expanding Your Influence, will feature a panel of powerful women influencers in business, philanthropy and social action, co-presented by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Sedona Verde Valley Chapter.
