Don’t miss the Q&A…

After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: The Social Dilemma, featuring a conversation with director Jeff Orlowski and producer Larissa Rhodes. (Monday, November 16 – 3:00 pm PT)

Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch The Social Dilemma in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media.

We tweet, we like and we share — but what are the consequences of our growing dependence on social media? As digital platforms increasingly become a lifeline to stay connected, Silicon Valley insiders reveal how social media is reprogramming civilization by exposing what’s hiding on the other side of your screen. The film features compelling interviews with high-profile tech whistleblowers and innovation leaders including Tristan Harris of the Center for Humane Technology; the co-inventor of the Facebook “Like” button, Justin Rosenstein; Tim Kendall, former President of Pinterest and former Director of Monetization at Facebook; Cathy O’Neil, author of Weapons of Math Destruction; Rashida Richardson, Director of Policy at the AI Now Institute, and many others. Demonstrating how social media affects consumers on a personal level, these fascinating insider insights are seamlessly woven into a captivating narrative, including Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men), that illuminates the very real consequences these seemingly innocent technologies can have on our everyday lives.
