SIFF Group provides innovative and distinctive film programs throughout the entire year. We are committed to educational programs that provide filmgoers the information and opportunities to raise not only their knowledge, but passion for film to an even higher level. We are dedicated to the exploration of cinema as art form, and our year-round film programs celebrate, examine and debate films and the filmmaking crafts, to expand and deepen the public's understanding of cinema as an art form.
