New Year, New Films
The second half of our 2104/15 film season is already underway – with the touching French Canadian film ‘Monsieur Lazhar’ starting the programme.
We have some great films coming up over the next three months, why not pick up a Film Society brochure in Curzon Ripon, or have a look on our film schedule page here on the website to see what is on next. Do come along and join us if you can, all guests are very welcome.
RFS was set up in 1998, and since then we've run an annual programme of screenings that bring a rich and varied mix of world cinema to our audiences.
The Society is run by a small committee of members, and as always we are keen to hear your views. Every year we hold an Annual General Meeting, and that is always an opportunity for all our members to share any thoughts about RFS, and get more involved if you'd like to - we welcome new committee members!
Once again Curzon Ripon have agreed to host Ripon Film Society screenings - we've had a great response from our members to the image quality, comfort, and atmosphere at Curzon, so no need to bring cushions - sit back and enjoy the films from comfy seats!
Our Next Film
The Wind Rises Mar
Animated Drama Japan 2014
Acclaimed Director Hayao Miyazaki’s final film is a breathtaking story of love and war.
Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful aeroplanes. Nearsighted from a young age and unable to become a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company and in 1927 becomes one of the worlds most accomplished aeroplane designers.
‘Joyous and jubilant – but dealing with weighty issues of conflict,death and destruction…. it marks a suitably rich and strange exit for one of the giants of Japanese cinema.’
