We Watch Films, We Make Films…
UCD Film and Video Society is one of the more popular and active societies currently on campus. We have a wide range of events on every week from our regular themed screenings to our Photography Club, we here at Filmsoc have something for everyone!
Our biggest and most regular events are our screenings! Every Tuesday and Thursday at 6PM you can join us via Kast to catch our regular, weekly themed screenings. We show everything from blockbusters to classics, from Captain America to Casablanca, with our themes varying from films with incredible soundtracks to certain genres of film. So come by, chill out and hang out with us while we watch some great films.
If you’d like more outside the box filmmaking then come by Cineclub, Film Society’s avant-garde, art film & alternative cinema group that gathers weekly to watch films and discuss them in a semi-academic form. Screenings are on Wednesdays at 18:00 via Kast as well.
Alternatively, if you just love film and want to make friends via that love, we’re the place for you! You can pop by our Filmclub every Tuesday morning at 10am in our Discord server and catch up with other society members and our ents officers, Dearbhla and Alex, to hang out, talk film or anything else you’d like!
Our bigger events throughout the year consist of our Film Festival, at which we showcase member’s work and beautiful shots done by our resident Photography Club, the Gala, our semi-formal night out where we get dressed up (or not!) and have a boogie, and our overnight marathon, where we watch a series of films or just a franchise and have a good, chill time.
We have a number of film making workshops, from scriptwriting to acting to cinematography, taking place throughout the year to encourage our members to develop their skills and pursue their film making interest. We’re here to help you get your short film made, so get in contact with us to get it rolling!
Check out our socials for more information on our events and what else we’re getting up to. We look forward to seeing you there!
