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 Mondays nights through 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 42 films being offered in 2021 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 Open Events with free entry (koha/donations appreciated).


Come and join us on Monday nights – doors open 7.00pm for the purchase of drinks and food and socialising. Screenings start at 7.30pm with a short presentation by a guest speaker.
