And we thought we had it tough. Spare a thought for Klaus Kinski in 'Fitzcarraldo'. You try dragging a steamship over the Andes (must watch it one day, Rob said it was a cracker).
Who needs the Force when we are all crossing our fingers to generate the extra luck needed to ensure that our September screening goes ahead...7:30pm each Wednesday for the month of September, just wrap that middle finger around your pointer and hope for the best. And while you wait, check out all the answers to every quiz question since March last year... just click...
There is only one link to click here but it gives you access to every film WFS has screened since April 1996.
Explanation of colour coding:
Yellow - program for the year in chronological order.
White - program for the following year, and so on.
Orange - indicates that WFS owns a copy of the film and is available for members to borrow.
The Williamstown Film Society is a member of the Federation of Victoria Film Societies (FVFS). Amongst other things they produce a bi-monthly newsletter, Reel News, which you can access below by clicking on an appropriate link. David Stratton is the Patron of the FVFS and it is through his association with the FVFS that he produced the video introductions to selected movies. We used his introduction to the Danish suspense - thriller, The Guilty, back in February 2020.
A slowly growing collection of books for you to borrow. Just email Michael Slee (Join Us page) and he will bring it along at the next screening. Sign the borrowing book and bring it back next month. It is a simple as that.
The link below takes you to the Williamstown Film Society's original website, which was managed by Barbara Sloan. It is still reachable with its last entry in 2019. There are some old newsletters, calendars and notes on some of the films we have screened as far back as 2014 in an archive. It is far from complete but it is nice to browse through. A job for the future to upload all of the old newsletters and other documentation of our recent history.
