In 2004 local film enthusiasts, with the generous support of Georges River Council and key sponsors, established a local, non-profit community cinema for the St. George region.
There was a great need for a film group to quench local film enthusiasts’ desire for a forum that allows for the viewing and discussion of a variety of films.
The Film Seen promotes appreciation of a wide range of culturally diverse films, which are of particular interest to the locals residing in the St. George area. These include foreign films, independent films, arthouse films, classics and short/feature films by local film makers.
The Film Seen has shown movies from many countries including Argentina, Sweden, Israel, Japan, China, Russia, Iraq, India, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Korea, France, Holland, Germany, Canada, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, England, the USA and Australia and on a number of occasions the movies’ Directors have attended for Q & A sessions with our audience.
As an Incorporated Association, attendance at screenings is by membership of the Association.
Screenings are on the third Sunday each month at the Civic Theatre, MacMahon Street, Hurstville.
The Theatre has now re-opened following emergency repairs. See our Current Program.
