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 on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 18:00 in the UCD cinema to our breakfast mornings on Thursdays at 10:00, we have something for everyone. Come along for free coke and popcorn at every screening and an assortment of breakfast items at our breakfast mornings. We also serve pizza and beverages at our social evenings.
CineClub is a UCD 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 Mondays at 18:00.
Film Review Club is one of our devoted clubs within the Film Society. It is a place for students who are passionate about watching and critically evaluating film in a casual environment. Members also have the opportunity to have their reviews published with the University Observer.
Our bigger events throughout the year consist of our Film Festival at which we get respected and established film industry guests to attend. Last year we had actor Aidan Gillen and director Jamie Thraves to do a test screening of a new unreleased film, as well as cinematographer Larry Smith BSC. In addition to this, we have an abroad trip and a formal ball every year in semester two.
We have a number of film production workshops taking place throughout the year to encourage our members to develop their skills and pursue their film making interest. We produce a number of short films every year of varying lengths.
Check our Facebook Page for more information on our events. We look forward to seeing you there!
