We Love Film

Welcome to the Godalming Film Society Website

We LOVE film!

We are a members’ only society which celebrates cinema by screening films that are rarely seen on the main circuit, with an emphasis on world cinema. We screen over 20 films on most Tuesdays from September to May at the Borough Hall in Godalming.

New Season (2018-19)

Our new season starts on September 11th 2018 and runs through to May 14th 2019. The committee has selected the new programme and membership invitations have been sent out. The films are listed below. Click on them to read notes about the films. It's not too late to join - simply complete the Membership Form and send it to us with your payment.
