The Buffalo Film Seminars Series I-VIII Spring 2000-Spring 2004

Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian

 

The Buffalo Film Seminars are an experiment in public education conducted by the University at Buffalo and the Market Arcade Film and Arts Center, a public theater owned by the city of Buffalo. Each week UB professors Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian introduce, screen, and discuss a classic film to a group of 45 university students and any members of the public who want to join them. This booklet describes the history of the series and the Market Arcade Film and Arts Center; provides indexes by series, title, director, and year of release to all the films exhibited and discussed in the first eight series of Buffalo Film Seminars; and also includes an article about James Card, the film historian who was the inspiration for the Seminars.
