Who We Are

The UBC Film Society (FilmSoc) is one of the oldest and largest clubs at UBC. As far back as the 1930’s, FilmSoc has been making films and entertaining the UBC community through film previews, film festivals, and regular screenings.


FilmSoc has something to offer everyone. Our club allows you to be as involved or uninvolved as you would like while still offering amazing benefits. Just want to see cheap movies? FilmSoc has you covered! Want to make films? We're the club for you! Want to meet new people or volunteer? We can make that happen!


Membership is cheap and the benefits are endless.
