Silkscreen Film Society

Silkscreen Film Society features a programme of selected films designed to offer members the chance to regularly see a range of high quality, original works which normally never feature in other cinemas.

Films are shown fortnightly in our auditorium – twice a night, normally at 5.30pm and 8pm, to accommodate all members.

Each film is introduced by a short talk from a member.

The season also usually includes a ‘short film’ evening and an evening talk about some aspect of film, and the AGM is held each March.
