The lost films of 2021...

Thanks to our too friendly Coronvirus, four of our programmed films went unscreened for the second year in a row. Now, we like these movies, all of them, and are planning something special by way of a Sunday afternoon double feature, in a secret location. This location is very local, sure to surprise and may even bring back memories for some. In case you have forgotten any of the missed movies, all four have been included below, and just like an old black & white silent they are hanging on by a whisker waiting for a heroine (or hero) to grab their hand at the very last minute... saving them just for us! Details TBA.

Date & Time TBA

DR STRANGELOVE (UK, 1964, 95min, B&W) Rated - PG - Parental guidance required.

Date & Time TBA

SARAH'S KEY (UK, 2010, 111 min, Colour, Drama) Rated - M - Recommended for mature audiences.

2022 Williamstown Film Society Committee

Thank you to those members of the current committee who were keen to continue in their roles for another year. A special thank you to Dorothy Page, long-time President of the WFS, and Ross Dufty both of whom have stepped down from committee duties.
