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 2020 - 2021 season

We continue to adhere to current Government guidelines - with consideration for the safety of our members as our highest priority.  Therefore we will continue to stream our films for the rest of this season.

Although streaming a film from home can never be the same as being part of an audience, we still want to continue sharing films with our loyal members!

Our last film "streaming" of the season will be on Tuesday May 18th:  "The Last Diamond".  A high-class heist to steal a priceless 137 carat diamond being sold at auction is the premise for this good-looking crime caper.   

We will hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) ahead of the film - to start at 7:20 pm sharp!  We have already sent out an email to members with all papers including the Zoom details.  Any questions, please contact our Secretary Steve Stanley at secretary@godalmingfilmsoc.org.uk or 07762 349936.

We have a separate website for our streamed films and this is godalmingfilm.com. Members will have received log on details.  If you have any issues please email us at streaming@godalmingfilmsoc.org.uk.  

Stay safe!
