Fall 2022 Buffalo Film Seminars

Posted by Tim on July 1, 2022 in Community Announcements, Event

Dates are for the Tuesday 7PM Zoom discussions. Weekly announcements, with the week’s Goldenrod Handout and url for the Tuesday Zoom will go out to the list three days earlier—late Saturday afternoon. 

All films are available for rental on Amazon Prime (with membership) except The Wind Rises (it is available for streaming on Prime, but for purchase only, $12). Most are also available for rental on other streaming services (Apple, Hulu, etc.) as well. You can check that at Some are available free or for rental on YouTube; often (not always) the free versions on YouTube are far lower resolution than the rental versions. Several of the films will also be available free to UB email account holders through the UB Library’s Kanopy and Swank portals; that list will go out later this summer.
