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

We Have a Pope Nov05

Drama/Comedy     Italy 2013

The College of Cardinals is sitting to elect a new Pope. Finally Melville, a compromise- candidate, is chosen, but he very much doesn’t want the honour. As his election is still secret, he puts on his old clothes, slips out of the Vatican, and wanders the streets of Rome.

“A film of good humour and warm heart.”
