Dorchester Film Society
Showing The Best Of World Cinema Since 1958

About The Society

Every season we aim to show a variety of films that would not normally be screen in local commercial cinemas. The majority of these films are foreign-language with subtitles.

We are members of Cinema For All and the Cinema For All South West group.

Our first season was 1958/59 so the upcoming 2018/19 season will be our 61st! We currently have around 200 members and we always welcome more, so if you would like to join us please let us know. We start the season with a welcoming glass of wine and at the Christmas social we offer you mulled wine and mince pies. Click here to become a member.
