Societies Awards 2018: Nominations
I'm delighted to announced that the society has been nominated for a record-breaking four awards at this year's Warwick SU Societies Awards.
We've been nominated for:
- Best Society
- Best Event – the Night of Wright
- Outstanding Contribution – Ashley Davey
- Warwick Wildcard – Nosferatu
The awards will be held on Friday 15th June - tickets are still available on the SU website.
Thank you to everybody who has been part of the society this year – that we have picked up so many nominations is a testament to your hard work and dedication!
Hello everyone, and welcome to Warwick FilmSoc!
We’re a fully functioning cinema and a film interest society, eager to promote film as a medium and to make it as accessible as possible to everybody. We’ve got the best sound in the area, and we’re one of the few places in the country that can still run 35mm shows.
Not only that, we also boast a vibrant social life, and a close-knit crew who are always glad to welcome new faces with enthusiasm. We strive to cater for everybody – FilmSoc is for everybody, and we try to make everybody feel welcome.
No matter what you’re after – if you only want to see one film, or if you want to get involved, learning some of the skills we offer (from projection to marketing) – we have something for you. Drop us a line, show us your face – we already look forward to it!
You know, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Want free films for yourself and a guest?
Yes, that's right! Get involved with Warwick Student Cinema and you and a guest can come to as many of our standard screenings as you want for free.
What's the catch? There is a minimum commitment but it isn't much; a few reviews every term or stewarding once a fortnight, for example. Beyond that, there are plenty of opportunities if you're interested but it is really up to you.
What can I do then? Well, that's entirely up to you but we like to think there is something for everyone, be it stewarding films, training as a projectionist, helping to design our new website, or writing a film review for our booklet. Have a browse around the Get Involved section of our website, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just say hello to one of the front-of-house staff before or after a screening to find out more about the different roles.
Why should I do it? Persuade me! The simple answer is that we need you. The society cannot function without the volunteers who help keep everything running smoothly, so that our audience can come and see the film knowing they will have a great time.
But, what's in it for me? Aside from the free films, you will be part of a society that will develop your transferable skills and increase your attractiveness to employers. And that's not forgetting our regular socials.
So, what do I do next? Your best bet is to send an email to email@example.com or just say hello before a screening and we'll tell you how best to proceed from there.
