Welcome to Chorleywood Film Club’s website!
Here you will find out everything you need to know about the Club’s screenings, the Film Festival and Special Events. We look forward to meeting you soon!
Our Virtual Film Club season ends next Friday, 16th July 2021, 7.30pm, with the online Zoom discussion of the award winning social realist drama – Rosie.
The film (2019: Cert. 12: 80 mins) is currently available to watch free-of-charge on BBC I-Player. Set in present day Dublin, a young couple and their four children find themselves homeless after their landlord sells their rented home. The story unfolds over 36 hours as the couple desperately search for a place to live while trying to shield the kids from the reality of the situation.
Directed by Paddy Breathnach, from a screenplay by Roddy Doyle, the film stars Sarah Greene and Moe Dunford.
“Wrenchingly powerful and heartbreakingly relevant..” Wendy Ide, The Observer
Here’s how it works….
* We select a film that is currently available on a free-to-view television service (e.g. BBC I-Player or All4) and supply you with a synopsis and a date for your diary.
* You register your interest by e-mailing us at Cwfilmclub@mail.com to take part in the discussion.
* We send you a set of screening notes and a link to the Zoom discussion that’s been booked.
* You choose when to watch the film during the intervening period …and then on the fixed date we have the facilitated online Zoom discussion about it.
Apart from your time it costs you nothing to participate. Even better, our virtual Film Club means you can join in with others in our community, whilst engaging safely from the warmth and security of your home.
Please join our newsletter Cwfilmclub@mail.com for our monthly online event program over the following months and follow us on social media for the next dates.
