University College London Union

Film Society

The award-winning UCLU Film Society provides a forum for both emerging filmmakers and cinema lovers. The society offers a diverse range of opportunities for members to meet others who share a passion for film and get involved in filmmaking, regardless of experience.

The society is over 65 years old, making it not only one of UCLU’s longest running societies but one of the oldest in the country. The society has produced a number of notable alumni throughout its history, including director Christopher Nolan (President 1992-94) and producer Emma Thomas. 

Alongside a termly bidding process for society backed short films, we run regular workshops, socials, weekly film screenings and talks from industry professionals. All members gain access to our stock of equipment and the use of our dedicated studio located in the Bloomsbury building. 

There are also opportunities to help create our award-winning film festival, which in 2015 will take place in UCL’s Bloomsbury Theatre.

Whichever aspect of film you’re interested in, from watching, making or discussing films you will be able to develop your interest and skills as well as meet other like-minded people at the UCLU Film Society!
