Who we are

The Wellington Film Society is run on behalf of its members by a voluntary committee elected at the Annual General Meeting held in March each year. We are a non-profit incorporated society, affiliated to the New Zealand Federation of Film Societies, which has been screening films in Wellington for over 65 years. As well, there are film societies in Auckland, Hamilton, Whanganui, Palmerston North, Nelson, Canterbury and Dunedin, and several smaller centres. Membership also gives you free entry at any of these other film societies in New Zealand.


The Wellington Film Society enables you

to see in a cinema a range of

international cinema you are unlikely to

see elsewhere. Membership gives you

free entry to all our screenings. Full year

members also qualify for generous

discounts at the annual NZ International

Film Festival held each year in

July/August, as well as discounts at

Wellington cinemas and Aro Video.

Anyone can join Film Society membership is open to everyone. However, we operate on a subscription basis because (with just a few exceptions) we have non- commercial screening rights, and must screen to members only. It is easy to Join, and membership runs for 12 months from month of joining. We also offer an upgradeable "Three Film Sampler" to make it easier for potential members to sample our films. Guests cannot be admitted, unless specifically stated in the Schedule, in which case visitors are admitted as members’ guests and a donation (notes only) is payable at the door.
