Programme for 2018
Our programme runs with fortnightly screenings from Thursday 08th March until November, this year will be made up of 30 screenings or more.
Feel free to download a pdf of the programme.
The films that make up our programme 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.
We, the committee, are looking forward to this year's programme of screenings, and we hope you share our anticipation.

Writer-director Robin Campillo’s BPM (Beats Per Minute) throws us into the milieu of sexual and political activism during François Mitterrand’s Government of the early 90's. As seen through the prism of the ACT UP movement in Paris, this film passionately illuminates the fight for social acceptance by people living with HIV in the face of drug manufacturers reluctant to expedite treatment breakthroughs.
