BMFI Film Studies Online

BMFI Film Studies Online presents educational and interactive opportunities to stay socially connected, mentally stimulated, and safely engaged while BMFI is closed. Weekly film discussions, Ask Andrew lessons, film-themed puzzles, and other educational opportunities are free for everyone, because while distance learning is necessary right now, we believe that our collective mental health and creative well-being are important during times like these, too. Remote Classroom courses and seminars offer students opportunities for a deeper dive into genres, filmmakers, and eras with interactive, multi-media sessions, while supporting BMFI. 

Amplify your at-home movie experiences with upcoming Film Studies Online programs, and all of the archived discussions in the BMFI Film Studies Online Library. Learn when new content is posted each week by subscribing to our emails.

If you’re a fan of what we’re doing here, please consider making a donation to BMFI.  All contributions will go directly to staff compensation during this temporary closure.

Where in the world are BMFI Students?

Ever since we began Film Studies Online back in March, we’ve been hearing from people beyond our local area who’ve begun participating in our education programs now that they’re online. Where (in the world) are you when you join us for an FSO discussion on Monday nights or a seminar on Tuesdays? Let us know!
