Taking you further into film

The Canterbury Film Society provides a carefully curated programme of films to captivate, inform and inspire film enthusiasts as well as those on the hunt for alternatives to mainstream cinema. ​ We screen films on Monday nights over nine months of the year from February through October at the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.


Full membership provides access to all our regular screenings. With 34 films being offered in 2022 season, we bring our members extraordinary films for less than $4 per screening.


We offer new members a Flexi-Pass trial, i.e. any three films for $30. (These may be shared and have no expiry date.) Check out our Public Events with free entry (koha/donations appreciated).

Come join us in February 2023

Canterbury Film Society is on summer holiday - but we will be with our regular Monday night screenings at the Christchurch Art Gallery from Monday 13 February 2023.
