Join 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 March to October at Alice Cinematheque 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.

You can see our 2014 season schedule here.

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!
