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.


Our 15th season has now ended!

Thanks to our members for loyal support as we got back to normal screenings!

A notice about the premiere of a new film:  "The Impact".  This film is the result of a collaborative filmmaking initiative run by Create50. The feature film is comprised of thirty-seven short films made by various filmmakers from around the world.  It's an action/drama/sci-fi film and the tagline is "What would happen in the final ninety minutes of humanity?"  

GFS is proud that Michael van Koetsveld (a GFS founding member) was heavily involved in the making of this film (exec producer, editor, boom operator, sound engineer, still photographer!).

The premiere is on 31 May at The Genesis Cinema in London - tickets can be had at impact50film.com.

See you next season!
