Welcome

The Wellington Film Society shows films the way they were meant to be seen, on a big cinema screen with a large crowd of like-minded people, and shows 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 NZIFF in August, as well as discounts at Wellington cinemas and Aro Video.

Who We Are

The Wellington Film Society is run on behalf of its members by a voluntary committee elected at the Annual General Meeting. 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 75 years. There are also film societies in Auckland, Hamilton, Whanganui, Palmerston North, Nelson, Canterbury, Timaru and Dunedin, and several smaller centres. Membership also gives you free entry at any of these other film societies in New Zealand. All Covid-19 health and safety restrictions have now been removed, except for wearing masks when visiting health, disability and aged care facilities. Mask wearing is now voluntary, so please be considerate of those who still prefer to use them. Mask use is the most effective way of reducing the spread of Covid-19 and other respiratory infections. See our previous advice here. Our full screenings list, with any changes and censorship detals can be found on our Schedule. A quick guide to what is coming up can also be found here. And vote on our most recent screening by using Rate The Film.
