I am on the Board of Cinema Art Bethesda and I am a frequent moderator of its film discussions.  In addition, I have conducted the Film Study Course for the Brandeis University National Women's Committee for 19 years, and I teach film history for Johns Hopkins Osher Learning and Living Institute.  I co-hosted a cable TV show called "The Screening Room" with Robin Levien and I was a nationally syndicated film critic for Tribune Broadcasting.
