The Society For Film exists to promote and celebrate great cinematic experiences. We love watching films; new releases, old classics, blockbusters, obscure gems, mainstream, art house or world cinema. We enjoy watch films on the big screen, the home theatre or even the scratchy little screens we look to for solace while flying across the world.
Begun in January 2012 by James Marsh a Hong Kong based film critic, editor and festival programmer and Fernando Gros, a Tokyo based musician, photographer and writer, The Society For Film has now published 50 podcasts, over 750 long and short reviews.
We are committed to building up The Society For Film as a solid, entertaining and reliable guide to the best in cinema.
