Welcome to the Canterbury Film Society!

In association with the New Zealand Federation of Film Societies, we present a top-quality season of films that screen every Monday from late February to early October at the Academy Gold Cinema in central Christchurch.

The thirty-week season covers a wide variety of cinematic experiences: cinema classics, arthouse rarities, international cinema and documentaries as well as local cinema and shorts.

This year's season will begin on the 23rd February! You can now see our 2015 season schedule here. We have a fantastic mix of films this year and are also showcasing some groups of films linked by people, places or style.

For a one year membership you get thirty festival-quality films on the big screen in a film club atmosphere - works out at less than $5 per film! With a full membership you can also bring a friend along to any one screening free-of-charge. Just tell us on the door when you arrive with your friend and we will click your membership card.

A one year membership rolls over into next year's season if you join throughout the year. We also offer a 3-film membership so you can try it out and upgrade later. Join today!

OPENING NIGHT!
Monday 23rd February at ACADEMY GOLD CINEMA
7:45pmCAMILLE REWINDS
(Noémie Lvovsky, France 2012) M 115mins, in French with English subtitles

“While on her way to a friend’s home on a snowy New Year’s Eve in 2008, Camille Vaillant, whose husband, Eric, left her for a younger woman, stops into a jewelry store. She decides to take the opportunity to get the watch she’s had since adolescence repaired. Later at her girlfriend’s, Camille, who likes the bottle a little too much, faints just before the stroke of midnight. When she wakes up the next morning, it’s 1985 again and she’s back in high school." - Tribute.ca
