How does it work?
Purchase a ticket. With your purchase, you will receive access to a pre-recorded lecture to watch on your own.

2) Find and watch the film. Please note that MMU is not offering direct access to any films. All MMU featured films are available to rent on major VOD services for under $5. Contact us if you have difficulty finding a title.

3) Submit questions in advance. Email us any questions you’d like the instructor to answer! You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions during the seminar, but giving us some advance notice helps us better prepare.

4) Join us for a virtual discussion, where our instructor will discuss the film in more detail and answer your questions. You will receive a link to the discussion when you buy a ticket.
