The Orange Film Society

 

What we do

The Film Society’s aim is to encourage interest in film as an art and as a medium of entertainment, information and education. A film is shown every month on the last Sunday, except December. We select cultural films for our program (eg. Arthouse, Foreign Language). We try to bring films that our members would not get the chance see living in the area. We try to give our program variety.

 

Where are we now?

We are currently in our 31st season.

 

How we got here

It started off when a few people decided that the film industry in Orange did not have enough culture in it. So they began the Orange Film Society. They played a 16mm film in the west room at the civic theatre once a month, and around 20 people came. They would choose a different genre of movie a month (e.g. Silent, Sci-Fi, etc.). As the years went by, they decided that one or two films a year would be shown at the Australian Cinema. These were popular with the members. So several years back, they decided that all films were shown at the cinema. As the years went by, the members went up.

 

What the committee does

The committee of the Orange Film Society Inc. is a group of around ten people who manage the society. They select current films for the cinema to show. Anybody can be a committee member. The committee members are nominated at our Annual General Meeting. The committee meets on the 1st Tuesday of various months in the committee members’ homes.
