About us

Hello! The LSESU Film Society is a welcoming space for cinephiles and movie lovers. Our main focus is on films outside the traditional Hollywood blockbusters, to expand your appreciation for cinema beyond the commonplace. From award-winning to indie, from Taiwanese classics to German arthouse, we would love for you to join us in exploring the varieties of cinema available today. Founded in 2010, the aim of the LSESU Film Society is to entertain, educate and challenge the LSE community through the medium of cinema. But beyond that, we wish to provide for you a community of like-minded individuals, for you to find some really awesome people to talk about the films you like with.

Due to the COVID-19 regulations, our committee is exploring different ways to continue to host screenings and social events, with health and safety measures, such as contact tracing for in-person events, in place. We are committed to ensuring the wellbeing of our community.

Membership

Our membership fee is £4 for the entire year, and purchasing a membership to our society will give you full access to ALL our events, socials and subsidised excursions that we have planned out for this year. Your membership fee goes to funding our movie licences, special events, and providing the refreshments and subsidies you will enjoy.

As a member of this society, you join a community of enthusiastic, film-loving, individuals. We are a welcoming society - whether you love action flicks, slapstick comedy or the most abstract arthouse cinema, you will find friends with similar tastes.

Events and Activities

We host film screenings every week (with popcorn!) and hold discussions post-screening. We also organise subsidised trips to the cinema every term and host many other exciting socials, including film pub quizzes etc. In Lent term, we also organise a trip to the Berlinale Film Festival, however this might be under revision due to the COVID-19 climate.

We have loads of exciting ideas for you to get in on: outdoor rooftop screenings, collaborations with other societies, and more intimate get-togethers.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the types of events we offer are being revised in accordance to health and safety regulations. While we are hoping to continue offer screenings with social distancing measures in place, in the scenario that society events in Michaelmas term are forced online, we also have a comprehensive contingency plan for virtual screenings, discussions and socials.
