LFS 2023-24 Season

We can finally announce what many of you have been waiting for – the Society’s return to screening films at The Venue at Bishop Grosseteste University.

Our next season will start on 15 September and comprise 12 films shown fortnightly during September – November and January – March. The first six films have already been selected, the second six will be chosen and announced during November to ensure that we continue to bring you as many recent releases as possible.

The price for the 12-film season will be £35 per head, with no concessions.

In the past we have also made day memberships available on screening nights but these will no longer be on offer, so the only way to attend will be to sign up for a full membership. Details of how to join can, as usual, be found on our website, here.

15 September – The Blue Caftan (Morocco/France 2022)
