Our 2024 Program

Our 2024 Program

WFS is still screening our films on the last Wednesday of each month, at 7:30pm, in The Council Chamber of the Williamstown Town Hall. It's official - all films are confirmed. Phew. Our interactive program of films below has some details but by the time our January screening comes around it will be chock full of reviews, trailers and other tantalising titbits. So, please wander through and wonder at what's in store, we think you're gonna love it...and check in each week as it gets bigger than Ben Hur (how's that for a movie cliché?)

THE DRESSMAKER (Australia, 2015, 119 mins, comedy/drama, colour) There are shades of an Aussie Western as Tilly steps down from the bus, Singer sewing machine in hand intent on revenge... and then there are the costumes, Cate Winslet and Judy Davis, and of course Sergeant Farrant (Hugo Weaving). A riotous beginning to our year of films. Happy New Year. What a start to the year... a Starbox score of 4.8 (out of 5 stars). Most had seen it before; many loved it even more this time around.
