About the Teaching Artist
Richard St. Ofle teaches film and screenwriting classes at Sacramento City College. He is a graduate of Berkeley’s prestigious film and rhetoric program, and USC’s screenwriting program. His work has been featured in the Sacramento International Film Festival and you can find his movie reviews semi-occasionally in Submerge magazine. His Berkeley thesis explored Film Noir and how it mobilized post-war American xenophobia, and his own work (including a TV Pilot being developed for HBO) usually involves something terrible happening to someone really nice.
