Program for 2019
Our program runs with fortnightly screenings on Thursdays, from March until October, except 30 films or more each season.
Feel free to download a pdf of the program.
The films that make up our program have been selected, mostly sight unseen by the committee and based on availability as announced by the distributors. We aim to select a variety of films from various countries, which in the end will not appeal to all members all of the time, but should appeal to a broad membership.
Please choose to attend sessions which you think will appeal to you based on the synopses and the film classification details we provide, or come to screenings ready to be pleasantly surprised or mildly disappointed, or worse, simply shocked.
We will again hand out voting slips this year, to give you an opportunity to provide a basic feedback for each of the screened movies.
While there aren't any other overarching themes, if you look hard enough you might be able to spot unintended correlations between double screenings.
We are keen to hear back from you about ideas you might have, feedback on films we have screened or films you would like to see in the future.
Productive comment is always encouraged and best sent to us via the website or Facebook page.
We, the committee, are looking forward to this year's program of screenings, and we hope you share our anticipation.

BURNING tells the story of three individuals and a mysterious incident they experience. Jongsu bumps into an old friend, Haemi, on a part-time delivery job. Haemi asks Jongsu to take care of her cat while she leaves on a trip to Africa. When she returns, Haemi introduces Jongsu to Ben, a man she met in Africa. One day, Ben and Haemi pay Jongsu a visit, and Ben reveals his secret interests to Jongsu.
