A quick search on Coursera gave me this:

Beyond that, check your local community college (assuming you're in the States, idk about other countries). If they don't have a dedicated film program, the English department will sometimes offer film classes. I'd look into the professor's background though. In my experience, actual English (or even Theater) professors have been really great, but sometimes these courses are taught by people with a background working in commercials or corporate videography which, while possibly informative if you want to learn the craft itself, is not ideal if you want to understand stories and storytelling.

Basically, you're looking for something tackling film primarily from a humanities (History, Philosophy, Literature, etc.) angle rather than a technical one.
