  • Small-group discussions focused on film analysis with Roger Durling (SBIFF’s Executive Director and SBCC Film Studies Adjunct Professor)
  • The opportunity to select films of interest out of the Cinema Society line-up and engage in research to help develop the Study Guides
  • One-on-one guidance from Roger Durling on creating an effective Q&A
  • The option to include a research component and receive credit through Roger Durling’s Independent Study Course at SBCC
