Lynne Thorner

Since moving to south Florida in 1992, Professor Thorner continues teaching a variety of Literature and Composition courses at Broward College in Fort Lauderdale. However, Lynne has earned a range of awards for her innovative exploration of cinema-as-art. For the community, Lynne created “Reel Talk,” an entertaining film seminar she facilitates for social groups in Palm Beach County. For Broward College, Lynne provides film programs for student-centered events, professional conferences and faculty workshops. Professor Thorner uses a film’s narrative elements, like conflicts, symbols or themes, while drawing attention to its visual features, such as lighting effects, camera angles and editing techniques, to highlight the artistry of visual story-telling, motivate inter-active discussion and promote reflective writing.
