Film Society wins another award

Shrewsbury Film Society, which has gone from strength to strength since it’s original formation in 2011 - has recently been awarded a distinction for film programming, via the Cinema for All Film Society Awards.

Screening a wide array of diverse films, Shrewsbury Film Society showcases the best that cinema has to offer, from comfortable surroundings at the Hive in Shrewsbury town centre. With prices that rival and indeed beat the mainstream cinemas, film lovers can access stunning screenings and enjoy a wonderful evening out.

The latest award for their film programming, is just one of many accolades which the Shrewsbury Film Society now boasts - including a previous commendation for Best New Film Society.

Speaking of the latest award, Corinne Brown of the society said “We have been honoured to receive the distinction from the Cinema for All Film Society Awards. This award demonstrates that our programme of interesting and unusual cinema really does appeal to local people. It’s always lovely to receive official recognition for the work that we do!”

Continuing to experiment with their programming and always aiming to offer people an alternative, Shrewsbury Film Society are now providing extra films on Wednesdays, to run alongside their existing fortnightly film schedule.
