Film is one of the most effective learning mediums! Especially when we throw in some anonymous polling to spark thinking around challenging topics. We host interactive screenings of films for both parents and learners.
- Our Kids Online: Must-see film for parents, made by parents: keeping kids safe from predators and the fallout from online pornography exposure.
- Brain, Heart, World: Unpacking porn’s effect on the brain, heart, and world, this series does a great job of explaining the science behind porn addiction, and how it begins a dependency in the individual, leading to disconnection from those around us and ultimately with our world.
- The Upstanders: A story of resilience, and the power of connection to end bullying, The Upstanders explores all sides of cyber-bullying, from bully to victim, bystanders and family members. Weaving together personal stories of teenagers and their families, as well as teachers and brain-scientists, it shows the importance of empathy and resilience to transforming attitudes and action, and highlights new laws and established programs that are already reducing bullying in schools and communities. It shows that everyone is needed to eradicate cyber-bullying, and gives bystanders the confidence and tools to become ‘Upstanders’, and help change the narrative.
- Finding Kind: Having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, a multi-platform movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities around the world.
- LIKE: A film which explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. Understanding that virtual connection is not going away and has many benefits, its goal is to inform, educate and inspire people of all ages to self-regulate, so they can enjoy balanced and fulfilled lives. LIKE weaves in the stories and reflections of teenagers, and the perspectives of both brain scientists and Silicon Valley creators, who explain how our online behaviour is affected by algorithms, from being compelled to respond to notifications, to manipulating ourselves to gain more ‘likes’.
- Nevertheless: A timely and essential look behind the headlines of #MeToo and Time’s Up at how far we’ve come on sexual harassment, and how far we still have to go. A critical issue for all high school students, who can start changing the culture of tomorrow now. Rather than blaming, this film contextualizes, leaving each one of us to come to our conclusions about how we want to change the world we live in, and how each one of us can do this.

First time to attend Be in Touch webinar on digital parenting, as a father of an 8- and 5-years old boys I was not really aware of how dangerously a digital world without control can affect my kids. I have now understood that I need to communicate with them and have agreement with gaming, as to how long and what games are safer for them. screen time is very important. I will strongly recommend any parent to follow this page for their children digital well-being.

Be in Touch is an absolute invaluable initiative and resource for parents and their children, and even for grandparents like myself, as we navigate this ever growing digital landscape. The digital connected world has such incredible value, but also many challenges, as not only we are being exposed to very powerful negative agendas over the web, but also the danger of devices being the new addiction. Josh and team, thanks so much for coming form a deep values-based motivation to support us in this way.

I've attended a few of Josh Ramsey's webinars. I learn something new every time. It is a scary world out there and these are super useful webinars with excellent tips for keeping our children safe. The most recent takeaway for me, as parents, is to model good habits to our children.
