If you like films, FilmSoc is the society for you!
At Edinburgh University Film Society, we are fans of all kinds of films, from 3-hour war epics, to beautiful documentaries, to trashy romcoms. Whatever your favourite film is, FilmSoc is the place to go to celebrate what makes it good, and argue about what makes it bad (a little healthy debate never hurt anyone - just don't mention The Last Jedi!).
Under normal circumstances, we run a student cinema, showing two films a week that you might not otherwise be able to see in cinemas (for this semester, we had planned to show The Matrix, Parasite, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Cinema Paradiso to name just a few). We also run socials, such as pub crawls, film quizzes, and scavenger hunts.
Obviously, with the current situation, a lot of this is not possible, and for now we will not be running screenings. We plan on resuming normal schedules as soon as possible, but this is unlikely to happen this semester.
With this in mind, we have made our membership fees free this year: it now costs nothing to be a FilmSoc member. If you paid for a full year membership last term, we are working on getting refunds to you as soon as possible.
For this semester, we shall be doing fortnightly Zoom film quizzes on Thursday evenings, Monday evening Zoom meetings to discuss both the workings of the society and whatever film topics come to mind, and more one-off events we are still working on. Follow us on social media to keep updated with our latest events, and don't be afraid to drop us an email if you have any questions!
