What is Film Soc?
The Essex University Film Society is a group that consists of Film buffs and enthusiasts alike who meet for weekly events usually geared towards the world of Cinema, where members can feel at home viewing and discussing movies together.
And What does it consist off?
Film Soc is a fun and friendly society, allowing anyone from casual movie watcher to hard core Cinephile to come and enjoy the society’s multitude of special events throughout the year.
Our main events will consist of weekly screenings in collaboration with Cine10 (Essex University's very own Cinema) with socials at the closest bar happening afterwards. Those screenings will contain a diverse selection of movies that anyone can enjoy. Other special forms of screenings like marathons and all nighters could also happen so watch out for those during the year. While most screenings will happen on campus, there will also be screenings happening outside of campus. For example trips to the nearest cinema (the Colchester Odeon in this case) & Imax facility (in Ipswich) will happen. And film trips to First site as well as Wivenhoe (Wivenhoe Film Club), which show mostly art house, foreign and independent movies are very likely to take place.
But Film Trips are not going to be the only events in Film Soc as we are also planning a Movie Fight (Screen Junkies film debate) as well as film quizzes every term so your knowledge in film could be rewarded. Other events like Oscar night as well as trips film-related (Harry Potter Studio Tour, Film Festivals) are on the list for this year as well, we might also even do non film-trips (Colchester Zoo) so watch out for these events.
The society will also include non-film related events with simple socials such as trips to Colchester’s numerous bars as well as restaurants. Charity events as well as stalls on square 3 selling food will also take place for anybody who wants to help the society. Finally V-team events could also happen within next year for anyone willing to volunteer.
With all of this said, the Film Society wishes you an amazing year to come.
