Classes

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 film appreciation classes provide a forum for cinema audiences to discuss the history and culturally relevant contemporary issues across the art of film. Classes run the range from single-session conversations to multi-session series.
