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.

Cinema Dissection

Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Over six hours, an expert facilitator will share the stage with audience observations as they work scene-by-scene through a great film.
