The  joy of having a film society – it allows a range of types of films covering diverse topics many of which may be confronting and controversial.
It allows people the opportunity to see many types and styles of film ranging from comedy, to drama, to animation, to foreign films.  The Film Society welcomes healthy discussion among members and guests at the end of each film.
The Film Society committee puts on a light supper (for a gold coin donation per person) after the screening.
It is very cheap movie-going and you will be surrounded by other enthusiastic supporters in a welcoming setting.

You can bring your own cushions or chairs to make yourself feel really at home.

FAMDA’s Newest Offspring

Did you know that the letters of F A M D A originally stood for Film, Art, Music & Drama Association?
FAMDA is returning to its roots with the decision to form the Prom Coast Film Society.

The aim of the project is to provide access to high quality non-mainstream films in a community setting plus the opportunity for social discussion and interaction.

FAMDA has a strong reputation for providing Foster audiences with entertaining and often quirky plays and the Prom Coast Film Society aims to keep up this tradition using a new medium.

It is proposed that the Prom Coast Film Society would become a financially self supporting sub-group of the main FAMDA body similar to the Prom Coast Singers.

As mandated by the Australian Council of Film Societies (ACOFS) members would need to have a separate subscription for the Prom Coast Film Society.

The plan is to show “art house” films in the Fish Creek Memorial Hall on the  First Friday of each month, thus catering for both for both locals and those who visit at weekends.

The Prom Coast Film Society showed Animal Kingdom to launch the project on Friday 4 March 2011.
