The Society has been operating since 2008, and has about 400 members. It is a not-for-profit organisation led by a dedicated volunteer committee. Our programme offers a varied choice of film styles from across the world, sometimes preceded by a short film. Every 6 months a new programme is released which covers a variety of films, from mainstream cinema to small-budget productions which are not widely distributed but nevertheless well worth the effort. These are carefully selected by our programming group, who are all passionate about cinema.
The National Film School, as it was originally called, opened in 1971 on the site of the former Beaconsfield Studios. World-renowned, the NFTS has launched the careers of many famous directors, producers and other key players in the film industry. Through the ensuing years, the school's reputation has grown; not just in Britain but worldwide, and it is now considered to be one of the finest film, television and new media schools in the world, annually producing a steady stream of award-winning students, graduates and alumni.
