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 film quizzes, 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 at the UCD Cinema to catch our regular, weekly themed screenings with free popcorn. 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.
Alternatively, if you just love film and want to make friends over some coffee, our coffee mornings on Thursdays mornings hosted by our ENTs team, Robyn and Elliott, are the spot for that. We also serve biscuits so if you’re feeling peckish, grab two or so and you can talk film with members and committee members!
Every odd numbered week, we have our cineclub event, managed by our Auditor, Alex! This event is for those who wish to see more underground, avant-garde, alternative cinema if they want to expand their film library! These typically will have a discussion afterwards! Every even numbered week, we have our After Dark event, managed by our Deputy Auditor, Ryan, and one of the Screenings team, Ella! This event is for those who love horror and will have a good variety for those who wish to attend!
This semester, we have three big events planned! Firstly, in collaboration with the director of the Dublin International Film Festival, we are hoping to get a film celebrity in for an interview! Next, after Easter break, we have our Gala night, a formal event with a 1920s murder mystery theme! Finally, our overnight marathon, we won’t say what it is now but as a hint, we’ve been wondering where the hell this franchise has been loca! ;).
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!
