Hello New Huskies!

Welcome to all incoming freshmen and transfer students! We hope film fanatics and movie lovers will join us at the UW Film Club! If you’re interested in Film Club, but don’t know what we’re all about, read here.

Join us for one of our two sessions of film jeopardy and student film screenings during Dawg Daze! We have one on Monday September 25th and another club introduction opportunity on Tuesday the 26th. Both will take place at 1:30 in Savery 264. RSVP for Monday or Tuesday!  We’ll also be tabling at the RSO Fair in Red Square, so there are plenty of opportunities to meet club members and find out what we’re all about.

We have some great programming lined up for fall; the school year can’t get here soon enough!

Free Prescreening of The Big Sick for UW Students

Film Club is excited to announce it has an exclusive free prescreening of the new film The Big Sick!  We have been working with Amazon Studios to bring this film to UW Students over a month before it has a wide release! The screening will take place at 7:30pm on Thursday, May 25th and requires a UW Student ID to attend. We’ll be at the Varsity on the Ave rather than our regular spot for this one. See our event page here for more details!

Announcing Our New Website

Fellow Husky cinephiles–

We’re excited to reveal our new website! Our mission at the UW Film Club is to help foster a love of cinema at the University of Washington. We hope this website will continue to build a community of UW movie lovers, while also providing information, tools, and resources to students interested in making their own films. Thanks for sticking with us, and hasta la vista, baby!
