WHAT IS A FILM BLOCK?” A ‘film block’ is a group of films of varying lengths that address a specific topic or theme, or may be a totally eclectic collection. Run times range from 2 minutes to feature-length (60-80 minutes). A Film block typically lasts 1.5 – 2 hours, including special guest commentary & panel discussions.
