About Wakefield Film Society

Wakefield Film Society was formed at the end of 2008. A small group of people got together and wanted to show non-mainstream films in Wakefield. We didn't know if we'd have an audience, but decided to put on a film in January 2009 in the upstairs room at Henry Boons. We had the help and support of Tony Davison, the Chairman of the Yorkshire Film Societies Group. Tony brought along equipment and an Italian film, Pane e Tulipani, and forty film fans crowded in to watch. Realising we had an audience and needed a larger venue we moved to the Sports Club on College Grove, then on to the Theatre Royal. We now show our films at Bishopgarth Police Training College, which has a comfortable auditorium with seating for 140.

The Society is run by a small voluntary committee and all ticket income goes towards the hire of the venue, obtaining films and screening licences and paying for screening equipment.
