About Richmond Film Society

Richmond Film Society was formed in 1963 and has since screened over 770 films. Our objective was, and remains, to bring our community the very best in World Cinema. Our seasons run from September to April and comprise 15 films of international repute, typically drawing an aggregate audience of well over 1,000 attendees.

The second half of our 2017/18 season, commencing on 16 January 2018, includes films from USA, Colombia, Romania, Denmark, France, Spain, Germany and Sweden.

Films are shown at 8.00pm on alternate Tuesdays and are being screened at The Exchange from January 2018, following our relocation from St Mary’s University.

Film notes are provided for each screening and audience feedback is obtained via response slips. As affiliates of Arts Richmond, we also provide members with details of other local arts-related events.

Discounted Half Season Memberships for the second half of our Season at The Exchange – comprising eight films and commencing with ‘Paterson’ on 16 January – are now available for £35 – i.e. for less than £4.40 per film (full-time students £20). Existing memberships are, of course, valid at the new location.
