FilmForums are moderated and interactive panel discussions that feature filmmakers, community leaders, and scholars who are knowledgeable about the topic at hand. FilmForums offer CIFF patrons creative and unique opportunities to explore urgent, relevant, and complex social issues. These are issues that cannot and should not be ignored.

FilmForums take place immediately after the conclusion of selected film screenings.

FilmForums are presented with the generous support of Char and Chuck Fowler.
