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 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.
