Founded in 1958, the Canterbury Film Society is a member of the NZ Federation of Film Society. It offers festival-quality cinematic experiences such as classics, arthouse rarities, international gems and documentaries, local cinema and shorts – including some distinguished and innovative films never released commercially or shown on NZ television. This year's theme uses groups of films linked to people, places or style.
The 2017 27-film season runs on Mondays from 6 March to 9 October (except public holidays) with screenings at 7:30pm. Doors open 7pm for membership enquiries and ticket sales.
The Art Christchurch Gallery is a generous contemporary space
and CFS members enjoy meeting before films for a glass of mulled wine, beer,
home-baked food and a chat.
New members are always warmly welcome. Annual memberships run for 12 months from the date of joining and, at $132, work out at less than $5 per film; tertiary and secondary student membership is only $70. Or, buy a three-film $30 Flexi-Pass that has no expiry date.
