Hello! The LSESU Film Society is a welcoming space for cinephiles and lovers of film. Our main focus is on films outside the traditional Hollywood blockbusters, to expand your appreciation for cinema beyond the commonplace. From award-winning indie films, to classics from Hong Kong, as well as the best of modern British cinema, we would love for you to join us in exploring the varieties of films 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.
Our membership fee is £5 for the entire year, and purchasing a membership to our society will give you full access to ALL our events, socials, and subsidised excursions 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 have an in-person screening every week on campus, with some snacks provided. We also host a film-themed pub quiz each term, with prizes to be handed out to the winners. Typically, we hold an annual trip to the Berlinale, which we are hoping to bring back for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other activities such as pub quizzes and socials will be announced in the following weeks, so be sure to check this page and our socials for updates. We have loads of exciting ideas for you to get in on: collaborations with other societies, and more intimate get-togethers like picnics.
The committee is really excited to welcome new members. Please message us on Facebook Messenger (preferred for quicker responses). If you do not have Facebook, we are also contactable through our email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
