Film4All is a program that offers cinema education, discussions and workshops for the public. Many of the films we screen at SIFF start a conversation, inspire an action or pose a question. These forums and workshops provide a place for cinema audiences to discuss these issues, as well as learn the basic skills to make a film themselves.
