Our 2023 programme is live!

Wellington Film Society’s 2023 programme.
Fabulous films from near and far, past and present.

The season is bookended by two Hollywood classics.

We open on the 27th of February with the Southern Gothic masterpiece, The Night of the Hunter – recently ranked the 25th greatest film of all time in Sight and Sound magazine’s respected critics poll. With an iconic lead performance by Robert Mitchum and incredible black and white cinematography, it will look amazing on the Embassy screen.

We finish the season on the 4th of December, with the spirited romantic adventure The African Queen, starring Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart.

The programme features films from countries including Japan, Senegal, Australia, Romania, Macedonia, and Burkina Faso. Plus two classic Aotearoa New Zealand films, Sleeping Dogs and Smash Palace. We have really enjoyed selecting and assembling such a range of fine cinema, and would also like to acknowledge the help from the following long term supporters:

Te Tumu Whakaata Taonga New Zealand Film Commission, the Goethe-Institut, the Institut Français and the Embassy of France, and Unity Books Wellington.
