BACK TO
Quarterly Classics: What makes a film a 'classic' - stars? director? awards? decades of affection? Bracknell Film Society aims to answer this question at least partially in a new regular three monthly slot. The 'FILM LISTINGS' web page will keep you appraised of what is coming next.

A complete BFS showing list from 1960 is available through
the 'HISTORY' ICON at the top of this page.

Links to our previous shows in 2015, 2016 and 2017
are also given at the foot of this page.

Bracknell Film Society presents….
Woman with a Movie Camera

Four exceptional films, utterly diverse in nature but with one thing in common - a woman at the helm. In the run up to International Women's Day with its theme of Women in the Changing World of Work, join us as we celebrate women behind the camera.
