Welcome to the Canterbury Film Society!
We have an amazing 30-film season to look forward to. This year we have several groups of films linked by people and places including: Italian, German and Classic films, a selection of British female directors, two films by the Taiwanese New Wave master Hou Hsiao-Hsien and a collection of culinary-based films!

In association with the New Zealand Federation of Film Societies, we present a top-quality season of films that screen at 7:30pm every Monday from late February to early October at the Christchurch Art Gallery's auditorium 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.
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.
A one-year membership rolls over into next year's season if you join mid-year. We also offer a 3-film membership so you can try it out and upgrade later. Join today!
Where we are
This is the location of the Christchurch Art Gallery, which is where we showcase our films throughout the year.
