The Old Gazette Film Society is a sub-committee of the Dorrigo Dramatic Club Inc. formed in 2016 by a group of committed Dorrigo residents to provide an environment to share film, food and conversation on the Plateau.
We are a member of the Australian Film Societies Federation who issue to us, for a small fee, licences to show specific movies to our members. Due to licensing restrictions, you must be a member of the Film Society to attend screenings which are then free. Members are allowed to bring one guest along per calendar year and a guest may attend twice before needing to become a member.
Film nights are organised and run by volunteers. So please offer to come and help us serve refreshments or assist us with other tasks.
Check the calendar for coming films.
Next film Friday 23 March 7.30 pm Caché (Hidden) Set in France, Georges is a TV Literary Reviewer and lives in a small yet modern town house with his wife Ann, a publisher and his young son Pierrot. They begin to receive video tapes through the post of their house and family, alongside obscure child-like drawings. They visit the police with the hope of aid to find the stalker, but as there is no direct threat, they are refused help. As the tapes become more personal, Georges takes it upon himself to figure out who is putting his family through such horror. A true Michael Haneke Classic.
