Looking forward to our 2014/15 season 

It’s that time of year again, and we’re busy preparing for our next season of films, starting in October with a special event, hosted by the Mayor of Ripon, in Ripon Town Hall on Thursday 9th October, so hold the date in your diaries!

We have now finalised our programme, and will be writing out to all our members with full details of screenings, but meantime, you can also have a sneak preview here on the website.   We think we’ve put a great programme of films together for the season, and we look forward to seeing you all again in October!

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!

We look forward to seeing you soon, and hope our 16th season for Ripon Film Society will be one of the best yet!

Our Next Film

Opening Night – Filmed and Not Forgotten Oct09

A special event to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

The Right Worshipful Mayor of Ripon has invited Ripon Film Society to hold its Opening Night at Ripon Town Hall, where there will be a specially curated screening of ‘Filmed and Not Forgotten’.  This is a Yorkshire Film Archive production, focussing on a collection of films made in communities across Yorkshire during the years of the First World War, and presented by specialist curator, Martin Watts.

We hope you will join us for this moving story of the people who were fleetingly captured on film, one hundred years ago, and whose stories are being re-told today.
