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.


We are thrilled to be hosting a free film screening on International Women’s Day Sunday 8 March! “Feminista” is a film made up of 8 inspiring "mini-documentaries" about women and girls from around the world pursuing their passions and reshaping their communities.  Although some have serious subject matter, they are all upbeat! 

You can book tickets here on Eventbrite

From a fly-fishing mother and daughter in Greenland - to a breast cancer survivor - to a group of Pakistani school girls – they are all stories that engage and inspire.  Godalming College is kindly hosting the screening in their Hall (Tuesley Lane, Godalming, Surrey GU7 1RS).  The film starts at 4 pm (doors open at 3:45) and there will be a Q&A after the film.  Tickets are free, but please book via Eventbrite.   You can view the trailer - and read synopses of the short films - on the website https://feminista.co.uk/.

Our 2019 - 2020 season

We are now halfway through our 13th season!

If you want to add the screenings for the 2019-2020 season to your calendar click here to download this calendar file which will allow you to add them all at once, including links to the film pages on this site. Go here for information on how to add the calendar file to different digital calendars.

We are conducting a survey throughout this season of our members.  This is so we can learn more about the make up of the society, everyone’s opinions of it and the films shown, as well as views on some of the programming questions we discuss each year.  We want to make sure everyone has the chance to have their voice heard.  Please log into the Members' Area and have your say!

A new feature for our members is the introduction of the Godalming Film Society newsletter, where we share the films coming up and the films we've recently screened, along with news and announcements from the Committee.  Look out for this at the start of every month!
