Cinema Seminars

Curated and guided by industry and academic experts, Cinema Seminars invite you to take a deep dive into new and familiar film worlds.

Designed as a communal and conversational experience, Cinema Seminars offer participants the opportunity to thoughtfully explore, engage and foster new understandings of the film form within historical and cultural contexts.

All levels of learners and curiosity are welcome. While topics may vary, each seminar includes a talk and a film screening.

Nina Kleinberg explores the stories behind THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (screening after the seminar), FORBIDDEN PLANET, and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. Learn about the history and legacy of 1950s sci-fi, the culture and politics of Cold War America that influenced these films, the groundbreaking special effects of the era, and more.
