Welcome to Our World of Cinema!

Whangarei Film Society Inc. screens a varied programme of high quality films. These include international festival releases, award winning documentaries, dramas, avant-garde and historic films.

We are an independent not-for-profit film society, and proudly claim to be "the largest littlest film society in the land"! We have an annual subscription - over 500 members - and as a volunteer organisation we are well supported by our local community with audience numbers often over 100 people for our film sessions.

FORMAL NOTIFICATION of the Whangarei Film Soceity AGM – 2021:

The Annual General Meeting will be held in the Capitaine Bougainville Theatre on Tuesday 2 March at 6pm. Please note this is a change of film night from our usual Thursday booking at Forum North. 

Our 2021 film season will then begin at the conclusion of our AGM at 7.15pm. Film to be confirmed. 

Please Note: CHANGE of film night – for two nights only…Tuesday 2 March and Tuesday  9 March. We have made this change as the CBT is unavailable to us for the first two Thursdays.
