Free Workshops: Lockdown Film School
Get a taste for what our workshops our like, including how we curate and moderate discussions between pairs of filmmakers, with Lockdown Film School. Past guests have included Mike Leigh, Amma Asante, Patricia Rozema, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, and Lily Gladstone.
About Lockdown Film School
With #LockdownFilmSchool, we’re trying to connect the film community during trying times, while also highlighting the work of some of our favourite film artists. The “school” will convene every Sunday, and beforehand we’ll send you “homework” (a watchlist of amazing movies).
How Lockdown Film School Works
You sign up (it’s completely free), then each Sunday at 5pm ET, we’ll invite you to an hour-long Zoom call. There, we will facilitate a discussion between two brilliant filmmakers in the same field, and you can ask them questions in real time.
We’re no longer running the series weekly, but we will be doing one-off sessions from time to time, starting in October 2020. Stay tuned for future announcements.

Sessions in purple are free. Green sessions are premium workshops that follow the format of Lockdown Film School. You’ll need to purchase access to these workshops in green.
Sign up for the lockdown film school, and we’ll send you a link to join the live stream via Zoom. If you join via Zoom, you can ask your questions face-to-face with our guests. If that’s too much of a hassle, you can tune in via YouTube where we’ll be live-streaming the event.
Zoom is a free web conferencing and webinar program. You can download it for free for your desktop, tablet, or phone here.
Yes! A recording will be available on the Seventh Row YouTube channel after the fact. We’ll link to all of them from this page under the “Past Events” section.
You can email us your questions in advance at contact [at] seventh-row [dot] com or tweet us @SeventhRow. We’ll also be accepting questions live in response to the facilitated discussion so you can ask questions during the livestream, too.
The live streams are absolutely free!
We have guests booked until the end of July, and we plan to continue until at least the end of August.
