Thanks are due to the following

In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut we have The Adventures of Prince Achmed, 24 Hours, Wild, Paris Texas (to mark the passing of Harry Dean Stanton) and Young Torless. In cooperation with the Institut Francais and the Embassy of France: Baden Baden, Les Cowboys, Fidelio: Alice’s Journey, and the silent classic L’Inhumaine.  Also in co-operation with the Confucius Institute, Victoria University of Wellington: China’s Van Goghs.  And thanks to Event Cinemas Embassy Theatre for making their facilities available to us.

Accessibility Programme

The Wellington Film Society wants everybody to be able to enjoy our programme of great movies on the big Embassy Theatre screen. So the front row as you come in, Row F, is reserved for people with mobility issues. There are 'reserved' notices on the seats. Self-recognition is the order of the day: if you have mobility issues or have a temporary injury and find the steps too taxing, sit in one of these seats and enjoy the film. If you have a companion, they can sit in the seat next to you. There is a lift from the entrance foyer, so the whole experience can be totally step free! We would like to thank the Wellington City Council's Art and Culture Fund for supporting our accessibility programme.

Restorations

This year 15 features are in beautiful new restorations. Details are at the bottom of each of the film descriptions. Film Societies 2016 marked 70 Years of the modern Film Society movement in New Zealand. This Wiki was established to bring together the history of its origins and achievements.
