Beer Film Society was founded in September 2006. With a great deal of help from the British Federation of Film Societies and donations from Beer Parish Council, Devon County Council, Mike Green and several others, the Society was able to obtain basic projection and audio equipment. Our aim is to bring a combination of popular as well as less-mainstream films to the village. Over the years the Society has used any surplus funds from the screening of films to improve the quality of its equipment.
Our screenings are held in Mariners' Hall in Beer, for which we are very grateful. Mariners' Hall has a high-definition video projection system as well as improved acoustics, which together mean that our audiences get a first-class viewing experience. Films are usually screened on Thursdays, with the doors open at 6.45pm for a 7:30pm start. A licensed bar is provided.
Beer Film Society is excited to announce a special fund-raising event evening at
Mariners’ Hall in March in aid of Medics4Ukraine.
We are linking up with our own local explorer Mark
Hannaford, who helped set up the Medics4Ukraine charity, for a unique talk and
film night on Thursday 21 March, from which all the money raised will be donated
to a cause that Beer has embraced since it was inaugurated.
“The people of Beer have been so supportive of the
Medics4Ukraine charity since it was launched and
the village really has been
fundamental in helping us to achieve what we have,”
In the course of his long and varied career as an adventurer, explorer and
fund-raiser Mark has visited more countries that he can recall across the globe.
So, when Beer Film Society decided to show the only
ever Oscar-nominated Bhutanese film "Lunana: A
Yak in the Classroom", Mark was the obvious
choice to paint a picture of a remarkable country that few people have seen at
“Bhutan is truly an amazing country and both Nikki and I fell in love with it,”
The talk will then be followed by the film.
Beer Film Society has pledged to donate all the funds raised from ticket sales
on the night - £5 for members and £7 for guests – to Medics4Ukraine, so the more
people who come along the better for the charity.
If you would like to book a seat or table then please
reserve in advance by emailing
before Monday 18 March.
Our future screenings include:
Membership of Beer Film Society costs £15 for a full 12 months, and members pay a £5 entrance fee at each screening that they attend. The entrance fee for non-members is £7. Priority is given to reservations by members, but non-members may also reserve tickets. To book tickets and to find out more about Beer Film Society, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
