Since launching in late February, this website has received 229 different visitors and 1268 page views, which is very encouraging. We have recently added new pages that cover screening rights and a guide to help anyone thinking about starting a film society.
The site is a continuing work in progress. If you think something can be improved, let us know. Likewise if there’s a topic you would like to see featured, request it or send in your material.
Also, The InFilm Bulletin for April has come out and you can find it here.
It covers the launch of the Illawara film Society, The program of the Blacktown Libraries film club, a brief description of the Robert Altman films that are in the NTLC and more.
About the Blacktown City Council Film Club
The Film Club seeks to enhance the educational, recreational and cultural experience of city residents through exposure to an eclectic film selection. It involves the screening of a selected film followed by a group discussion on scenes and actors of interest, film anecdotes and trivia, and the historical context of the film just viewed.
Who can attend?
Film Club screenings are intended for mature library members. Please note the film classifications. Further information about film classifications is available here.
What kind of films are shown?
The films chosen have sufficient depth and complexity to support varied interpretations, responses and viewpoints.
All screenings are at 2.00 pm in the Library Function Centre, on the 3rd Saturday of each month, except December & January
