Welcome to the Fourth Friday Films Information website!
The Fourth Friday Films Series is held each month (except Dec) at 7 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Lehigh Valley, 424 Center Street, Bethlehem, Pa. 18018. The series is free and open to the public.
Our goal is to be a local catalyst for building a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world for this and future generations. Our Fourth Friday Film Series addresses critical social justice issues through solution-focused film and dialogue. We provides a community forum with compelling information and ideas for re-focusing our country on the well being of all citizens. We must become a society that "puts people, planet, and peace above profit."
