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 talks provide a forum for cinema audiences to discuss the history and culturally relevant contemporary issues across the art of film, deepening audience understanding and desire for quality cinematic experiences. Film Talks run the range from single-session conversations to multi-session series.
