Staffordshire Libraries are teaming up with the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) and BFI (British Film Institute) this summer to explore the power of film as part of a fantastic national pilot project for film clubs in libraries.

The BBFC Film Club project is a pilot scheme aimed to create an inclusive community group of film enthusiasts who will all share their reviews and opinions.

Film enthusiasts will be invited to meet at Wombourne Library and watch five films over a number of dates this summer. The films are all linked by the theme of parenthood. The films have been specifically chosen by the BBFC and the BFI who will provide resources for discussing the films further.

Staffordshire Libraries will also be supporting this project by stocking relevant books on the chosen films and also the study of film. The project is also taking place in Staffordshire Prison Libraries over the summer.

We are hoping to announce some special guests who will be meeting the film groups later this year.

A different film will be shown on each of these dates:

  • Wednesday 28 June
  • Monday 17 July
  • Wednesday 2 August
  • Monday 21 August
  • Monday 18 September

Arrive by 7:15pm for film prompt start at 7:30pm

FREE (Suitable only for 15+ years due to BBFC classification of some of the films being screened)
