Dorchester Film Society
Showing The Best Of World Cinema Since 1958

Dorchester Film Society has been showing the best of world cinema since 1958. Each season we show 18 interesting and highly acclaimed contemporary films.

For more information about the society please visit the About Us page.

We are pleased to announce that we are continuing our partnership with Your Screen, an innovative new streaming service, for a third season.

Following the success of our first two virtual seasons we have selected three films from the current Your Screen season that we think will appeal to Dorchester Film Society members. For this season we are changing the membership arrangements. Instead of asking for membership in advance we will provide our members and supporters with a discount code which will allow them to purchase each of the three films at a 50% discount. Payment can be made online direct to Your Screen when you want to watch each film.

In addition you will be given a code that will enable you to watch any of the remaining films in the Your Screen season at a 25% discount. Members will be entitled to stream films at any time during their availability. All current members and supporters will be emailed with the codes. Anyone who has not received an email please sign up and these will be sent out to you.

If you have not received an email with the codes please use the button below to sign up as a member.
