Port Fairy a small coastal town of 2,500 people in South West Victoria, Australia. Our Film Society is a community group of non-professional film lovers. The PFFS is run by volunteers. The PFFS became the de facto cinema exhibitor in 2005 after the private operator decided it was not viable to continue.
The PFFS has a primary program of 12 monthly Film Society screenings of popular and sometimes art house films and and an Australian Film Festival.
During the year, the PFFS also auspices several Community Fund Raiser screenings for the Community groups such as the Primary Schools, the Red Cross, Lions, Rotary, CWA, and Murray to Moyne. Most screenings are at 7.30 pm but there are also some matinees.
In January each year, the PFFS screens a program of current Summer Movies to entertain locals and holiday makers alike and to support its fund raising efforts maintains a 85 year old tradition of "Summer Movies" in Port Fairy.
So our Film Society does a bit to keep cinema alive and popular as a focus for community activities with something for everyone.
