The Barbakow Family Center for Film Studies is a new center for creativity and learning! We’re creating a fluid, flexible space that serves as a classroom, screening room, community meeting space, movie library and editing suite.

SBIFF’s engaging Education Programs reach over 14,000 people each year. These programs reach some of the most vulnerable members of our community – including at-risk and under-served youth, low-income families and their children, and transit-dependent senior citizens. We’re seeing many issues with access to arts education due to programs being cut in the public-school systems. We are working hard to fill the gap in need. All of our current programs are at no charge to its participants.
