Films in and Around West Dorset

The Bridport Film Society is only one of the many places to see quality film in West Dorset and the surrounding areas.

Below is a list of, and weblinks to, the principle places to see great films in our area:

Bridport's film festival: the only film festival investigating the relationship between books and film each April, with authors, screenwriters, film directors and academics discussing and debating the results.

Screening the latest in independent, European and world film, on state of the art digital equipment.

Bridport's former picture house features occasional films as part of its entertainment calendar.

Dorchester's film society screening several times a month at the Corn Exchange or at the Plaza Cinema.
