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 of over 500 members, and as a volunteer organisation we are well supported by our local community with audience numbers often over 100 people attending our film sessions.

Whangarei Film Society: 2024 Season – our 21st year! 

This year, our film season will run from 5 March (AGM and first film night) until Thursday 14 November (final film night and social event). 2024 is our twenty-first season of celebrating film nights. 

Please NOTE:  Change of our Thursday film nights to Tuesday nights from 28 May till 18 June. We are having to move our film nights to Tuesday  nights as the CBT is booked out for out-of-town shows on our usual Thursday evenings.

There are four consecutive film nights that are affected (Tuesday 28/5 to Tuesday 18 June) nights.

We will return to Thursday film nights on the 27th June.

ABOUT US: We screen weekly film nights, Thursdays @ 6pm and 8pm, March – November. There may be some changes with screening dates due to Forum North venues not being available. (eg: no film nights on Thursday 8 April and Thursday 2 May).  

We are located within Forum North, 7 Rust Avenue, Whangarei. Films are screened in the Capitaine Bougainville Theatre on the Mezzanine floor of Forum North.

COVID-19: While the NZ government has eased restrictions, mask wearing and being socially distanced is still a welcome practise when attending our film nights. Please show courtesy to others and their health needs.

Thank you for supporting these guidelines. Noho ora mai.

 ‘Film Club’ at Forum North is the spot where film lovers gather for a drink and to meet friends before Thursday  screenings between March and November.  
Film screenings for 2024 will be held in the Capitaine Bougainville Theatre, Forum North venue, 7 Rust Avenue, Whangarei.

All residents and visitors to Whangarei are welcome at screenings. Cash & door sales only.
