Ian Davies, ChairmanWelcome: As Chairman of Berkhamsted Film Society I would like to tell you a little about who we are and what we do. We are an active and friendly society with around 200 members. We meet in the Civic Centre, Berkhamsted and screen about 17 films a season. Most of the films are screened for two nights running to give people a greater opportunity to come along.

Civic CentreWe start the season with a welcoming glass of wine and at Christmas celebrate with wine and mince pies. We finish each season with a Film Party where members have a chance to enjoy light refreshments with a film, and a Film Quiz or similar entertainment afterwards.

We project using a modern digital projection and Dolby surround sound system. Our projector is ceiling mounted and we project onto a large 5 metre wide screen which produces a high quality image. The Hall is equipped with a hearing loop and has wheelchair access.

We screen a wide selection of English-language and Foreign-language (sub-titled) films across a range of genres, from recent main stream releases to art house films. Films are selected by our Society committee and include suggestions from members. Go to the Programme page for further details.

On Monday 28th July, the Society is showing the film 'Regeneration' at the Civic Centre at 8:00 pm. This is part of a week of planned events in Berkhamsted to mark the centenary of the start of the First World War. Regeneration is the film of Pat Barker's novel of the same name and describes the treatment of WWI soldiers with psychological scars. Two such patients were the poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. The film stars Jonathan Pryce and James Wilby. Tickets cost £5 and all profits will go to The Royal British Legion. To reserve tickets, please contact Ian Davies on 01442 395792. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night on a first come, first served basis. Guests are welcome.
