Series - Film Analysis Seminar

Film Analysis Seminar is a four-week-per-topic free program hosted by Northwest Film Forum that provides participants with a chance to dive deeper into films on a philosophical and critical level. In this class, students will discuss carefully curated films using the Socratic Method, which is a form of learning based on asking and answering questions. Through ongoing conversation, the program hopes to nurture art appreciation as well as communities of movie lovers.

"There was merit in every drawing; in the least finished perhaps the most. ... A likeness pleases everybody."

This September, we will be examining the process of transforming literature into cinema through a case study in film adaptations of Jane Austen novels and by reading key scenes in person and comparing them to a cinematic counterpart  ranging from accurate period pieces to stylized satire to high school comedies, well explore what different film productions and sensibilities bring to the world of Austen, and through that lens, analyze the task of adaptation.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
