Membership of Walton and Weybridge Film Society

 
   
Our seasons run from September to the following April or early May. Films are shown at roughly 3-weekly intervals on Wednesdays, commencing at 8pm. There is a small Christmas party after the nearest screening prior to Christmas, which is free to members and their guests.

Our membership fee for the year 2017/18 is £55 for a single member, £95 for joint membership for two persons.

Discounts of £2 single and £4 double are available for applications made before August 23rd.

Members book guests in advance with the Membership Secretary (contact details below), and pay £5 per guest on the door.

If you wish to contact our Membership Secretary, you can email our Membership Secretary at membership@wawfs.com

Please include in your email your name, address, and email address and phone number. If you are requesting joint membership, these details should be supplied for the joint member as well. The email address is only used for matters directly related to the Film Society such as last minute changes in screenings, membership renewal etc.

If membership is full, names go on a chronological waiting list, and people on the waiting list will be contacted as soon as membership spaces become available, usually late August/early September just before the next film season starts.

The committee meets from time to time to select the films to be shown. Members are encouraged to nominate films they would like considered for the programme. If you would like to nominate a film, please email our Chairman, Ken Wilson, on chairman@wawfs.com
 
   
Summer 2016 Newsletter to Members  
Dear Member  
We have completed our first season at The Hepworth Playhouse, and the venue has proved to be a great success, providing a much more intimate auditorium than we had at Cleves School. In addition, the professional services of Proscreens have provided first-class projection and sound with the minimum of fuss.
These improvements have not come without a financial cost considerably greater than experienced at Cleves School,so we are obliged to increase membership subscriptions – but retaining the ‘Early Bird Discounts’ and Guest Tickets at £5. In order to avoid excruciating postage costs, membership cards and film notes will be
distributed at film showings – although, of course, if a large SAE is provided when forwarding your membership application, your documentation will be posted to you. In the meantime, it will be possible from July to view the season’s programme and contents of the film notes on our website: wawfs.com.

We look forward to our 2016/17 Season with renewed enthusiasm and the roster of films to compare with any previous season. Maintaining our aim to show ‘World Cinema’ we will feature films from Iran, Mali, Iceland, Sweden and Argentina as well as from more traditional countries such as USA, UK, France and Italy.
Matching the range of countries of origin is the range of themes of the films, and not forgetting comedies.
I take this opportunity to report that we have not yet been able to recruit a Secretary or a Membership Secretary. These posts are not onerous; there is a flurry of activity prior to each season, but not a
lot subsequently. I appeal (again) to members to come forward to assist in any way possible.

We are very grateful to those members offering such services as provision of tea and coffee (free, and with biscuits!) after our showings and listing reactions given by members to the films shown. These services add ‘extras’ to a basic film-showing enterprise and are handled without requiring Committee participation.
We can be similarly flexible regarding positions such as Secretary and Membership Secretary,so don’t feel there would begreat formality.

Keep completing those reaction slips – they help greatly with programme planning and also allow members the opportunity to  offer suggestions for films on the reverse of the slips!
