How will this work?

When you register for this virtual education seminar, the program will be presented in three parts.

When you register, you'll receive an email with a link to watch a pre-taped lecture, to view before the film at your convenience.

Then, you can go off and watch the film on your own. Please note, the Coolidge is not able to provide the film ourselves, but you can find out where to rent and/or stream it here.

Make sure you watch the film before the discussion, which will take place on Thursday, April 23 at 8pm EST over Zoom. Before the discussion, you can submit questions for the instructor here. You'll also have the opportunity to submit questions during the discussion!

We're moving quickly to put this new service in place, so please be patient if we run into some initial technical issues. Have more questions? Visit our FAQ page here.
