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.

Upcoming Season 2019 - 2020

We've just concluded our 2018 - 2019 season - we screened 24 films over 9 months with an average attendance of 124 members per screening!

Membership forms and programmes are being sent out to members right now for the 19-20 screenings, which will be our 13th season! We're looking forward to seeing you all on 10th September for our first film, The Dish.

Don't forget that Godalming Film Festival (operated and sponsored by Godalming Film Society) happens during August, this year from Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th. This year is a terrific range of films that are all worth seeing on the big screen, and they are all free to book. You can find more information and book your tickets by going to godalmingfilm.com.
