Image of Conversations About Great Films with Diane Christian and Bruce Jackson.

Watch and discuss classic films, from the beginnings of cinema to the present, every week of the semester with Distinguished Professors Diane Christian and Bruce Jackson.


The Buffalo Film Seminars take place Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. promptly, at the Dipson Amherst Theatre, 3500 Main St., Buffalo, NY 14226.

Each week Diane Christian and Bruce Jackson introduce the film, the film is screened, we take a brief break, and then have an open discussion with students in a University at Buffalo film class and anyone else who cares to join us.

Tickets for the seminars are adults $9, students $7, seniors $6.50. Season tickets are available any time at a 15% reduction for the cost of the remaining films. Free parking.

Handouts with production details, anecdotes and critical comments about each week’s film on goldenrod paper are available in the lobby 45 minutes before each session. The Goldenrod handouts are posted online one day before the screening. (All previous handouts are also online.)

The Buffalo Film Seminars are presented by the University at Buffalo.
