Still from ‘Ex Machina’ screening on 30 April 2017

The film club works on a membership basis, although guests are welcome. It is run by a committee which selects and screens a programme of some of the best of world cinema and independent English language films. Foreign language films are subtitled.


Our next film, ‘Timbuktu’,  will be screened at 7:30pm on Sunday 19th November 2017. From one of Africa’s leading directors, Abderrahmane Sissako, comes this tale of life in the parts of Mali that have come under extremist Jihadi control. Centred on the family of a rural Taureg herder, Timbuktu presents a subtle depiction of the terrorists and extremists and their effects on the lives around them. A work of anger and compassion, teetering between hope and despair.

Membership is normally £38 for the year but is reduced for the remainder of 2017 to £20.  You can download the membership form  – you are also welcome to come as a guest (£5) to try it out and we will refund the £5 if you then join.

Listen to Committee Members Joanna Moncrieff and Phil Mynott talking on Phoenix FM in January 2016 about the films we screened last year and again for Phoenix FM in June 2016 to explain what the club is about.

All films are shown on Sunday evenings at 7.30pm in the United Reformed Church Hall, New Road, Brentwood CM14 4GD (opposite the library). On Sundays there is some parking in New Road and in the Chatham Way Car Park.
