Our first film night in the Theatre will be on Thursday 3rd March, the week following the AGM. If members wish to have more information about the Hearing Loop, please let me know, and I’ll ask the technician to explain on that night, and answer your questions.

NZIFF

The New Zealand International Film Festival begins its circuit next week, opening in Auckland on 17th July with 145 film titles. Sadly, the Whangarei town cinema is no longer on the NZIFF circuit (due to poor patronage). The Auckland programme is available now and I have a few copies for viewing on our Film Club nights. Please take advantage of this and note any outstanding films which you would like me to request for next year’s programme.

I won’t be able to take any further ‘requests’ for this season, as I’ve now got the programme sorted right up to September 4th. I’ll take requests later on for the 2015 season. These can include films screened in the recent FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL,, the upcoming 2014 NZ INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, and the later ITALIAN FILM FESTIVAL.

Please amend your programme if you have picked one up from Forum North. This Film Club date should now read: Thursday 14 August, in the Cafler Suite: 6pm The Great Beauty; 8pm Searching for Chopin.
