The Highgate Film Society operates on a membership subscription basis and membership is open to all: you do not have to be a member of the HLSI in order to join.
Subscription films are shown in the Victoria Hall. Except where otherwise stated, doors open at 7.30pm and films start at 8pm. Wine and juice are on sale before every performance and, for longer films, during an interval.
The nine subscription films in our 2015/16 season are listed below.
Non-HFS members are also very welcome to attend any non-subscription events taking place during the season
Two membership options are available and can be bought both through the office and on the door:
Full Member: one subscription payment of £35 per person for all nine films
Associate Member: one subscription payment of £10 per person which allows entry to any film for £5
Guests: £8 per ticket. HFS Members only may buy guest tickets in advance from the office, either in person or by telephone payment.
Guest tickets will not be available on the door.
Free introductory evening open to everyone - not just HLSI/HFS members
