Film enthusiasts wanted for new Film Club at Woodend Barn

Banchory’s Woodend Barn is starting a new Film Club to complement the films already being shown every month.

The Barn Film Club aims to gather together a group of film enthusiasts to develop ideas for films to be screened monthly at the Barn, increasing the current offering of films from monthly to once a fortnight.

The Barn screened Made in Dagenham in April, which sold out, and are showing the BAFTA and Golden Globe multi-award winning The Social Network on Tuesday (June 7) at 7.30pm.

The film tells the true story of a Harvard undergraduate who came up in 2003 with the idea for Facebook, the world’s biggest social-networking machine and resulting lawsuits.

Depending on Barn Film club members’ views, there could be director or actor retrospectives, foreign language films, genre films and classic film screenings.

Other ideas might include the possibility of post screen discussions, interviews with those involved in the industry and running a film festival.

While club members would set the programme, it is intended that screenings would also be open to the public.

Given sufficient interest, an inaugural meeting will be organised at the Barn to discuss the way forward, with the aim of starting up in October this year.

If you are keen to be involved, please contact David Officer at Woodend Barn to let him know your contact details on or phone 01330 826520.
