SEQUENCE


In the mid-seventies to mid-eighties, when the Wellington Film Society membership peaked at over 2600, its monthly magazine, Sequence, also grew and as well as being available to members, also attracted a mailing list around the country. The authour of this website was the editor. To satisfy the demand of such a large membership the print runs were generous to ensure we did not run out. As a consequence there are still copies available. For those who would like to dip back into those years, copies are available at $1.00 each, plus a postage and packing charge of $2.00 per dispatch within New Zealand. We list below the year and month of available issues and a summary of the screenings, censorship decisions and other content. Orders to David Lindsay, Wellington Film Society, Box 1584, Wellington.
