CFS AGM on 15 March 2021


Dear members, please note that the Croydon Film Society’s AGM is being held on Monday March 15 in Cinema 1 beginning at 6.45 pm. Please click here to access the AGM papers. We will be tabling the documents at the meeting, as read by the membership. Once the AGM has concluded, those members wishing to move to Cinema 2, may do so. The film being screened, Les Miserables, will begin screening at 7.15 in both Cinemas.






There are a number of positions that are shaping up in this in warm-hearted, active committee, and we hope that you will consider nominating for one that you feel you can happily fill.

One role is a very important role - the selector of films for the year-to-be. This person makes the long list from which members cast their votes, and from which twenty-one films will become the next program. If you love films, follow a broad range of previews and reviews, take in festivals including at least some of MIFF and love sharing your favourites with fellow members, then you are invited to apply for the equivalent of an internship, working closely with the remarkable John Turner, who has been the master of this role for many years. 

Eventually even superstars start thinking of retirement. Another long-standing, hard-working committee member is Howard Tankey, whose job it has been to chase up the distributors and ensure that the films arrive in the right format on the right night. Howard too is beginning to think of putting his feet up but needs to know that his role will be in good hands.

Another position we would really appreciate filling is a person with an interest in the computer field. If you know your way around various platforms and programs and are inclined to be a digital problem-solver then please put your hand up.

Our committee members are also be rostered at regular intervals throughout the year to scan tickets or hand out newsletters and join in the committee meetings. There are a couple of general committee positions vacant as well.

Why don’t you come along and observe what the committee does at its meetings? We do hope you will consider joining us on The Croydon Film Society’s Committee of Management.

Ways to contact the committee regarding your interest in joining the committee:

  1. In the AGM 2020 document package there is a nomination form, which can be completed and returned to the Secretary at and received before 5pm Friday 12 March 2021;

  2. Contact the President, Jean Middleton, on Mob 0431 068 570 as soon as possible;

  3. Speak to a Committee Member (look for their CFS lanyards) at the next screening.
