I want to run a distributed film night for some friends, the kind where we all watch the same film at the same time but in different places.

I'm sure there is a proper name for this.

And I'm sure I've seen other groups on the fediverse do it.

Are there any tips?
Is there a specific platform for it that works great, or do we all just "get the dvd" and chat using the same platforms as usual?

I think if done right this could be a really useful technique to keep social bonds during isolation.

the organizers of it have become quite good at organizing this kind of thing

@grainloom @wearenameless thanks Rain, I couldn't remember what the group was called!

@M0YNG you could use a PeerTube platform to share a video and comment it on fediverse

@M0YNG you can also have a look on
With this everyone see the film at the same time. It's broadcasting and vlc is able to connect to.
