Shuswap Film Society

The Shuswap film society is an all-volunteer organization of ardent (some may say obsessed) fans of World Cinema.

The society began in 1974 when a group of film fans in Salmon Arm decided to initiate a lively program of movies from around the globe -something totally unavailable at the time. Thanks to the generosity of the Salmar Community Association, movies were screened once per month at the venerable Salmar Theatre - at that time Salmon Arm's single movie screen. The Association's ongoing support enables us to continue operating there 30+ years later. During the early days of the society a program of films on 16-mm film was also shown at various venues around town.


A Shuswap Film Society membership is only $1, and is good from September until the end of May.

You must be age 18 or older and a member of our registered non-profit society to attend some films at Shuswap Film Society presentations.
Why? Because some of the films we screen are unclassified (not rated) and, under B.C. law, in order to see unclassified films you must be a registered member of a film society.
