Seminar class: In connection with the above films, CVEC is again offering a course of seminars, each given at 9:30 the following morning and led by the presenter of the week’s film.  For more information, click here.  To register, click here.

Comments from past seminar students:

• I thoroughly enjoyed the classroom presentations where I learned so much more about each film, its director, and interesting details about film making. I am finding that I watch films now with a greater appreciation as I notice things I hadn’t paid much attention to before.

• As always, the discussions after the films are the most interesting. I am always surprised at the many opinions that people have concerning any scene in a film.
