I'm new to Glasgow, but interested in the discussion group.
Given you meet once a month, do you pick a film each month to go see? (like book groups reading a chosen book each month).
Tomorrow is second wed, so its too short notice for me to make that meting.
Can you tell me What is the film to go see and/or be discussed at feb's meeting?
I'll get in touch with Eddie Harrison who runs the group and let you know.
Hi = what film is being discussed Wed 12th Jan?
We emailed Eddie Harrison who leads the group. The films discussed next month will be Black Swan and NEDS. Hope you can make it!
All the best,
I could not come to this evenings meeting, but I am interested in coming along to your next one on the 9th of March. Which films are you going to discussing then and do you have a online discussion group?
Hi, Just found this forum, I'm not sure if "/theatre/whats_on/1938_film_discussion_group" is the right section to post this, I am Tom from Australia.
Hi - I am really delighted to discover this. Good job!
Hi - I would love to come to the next meeting. Can you give me the date and the film you will be discussing? Thanks alex
Hi, a little OT but is anyone able to inform me if they are seeing a timeout error when they first come to this sites index page?
to answer to your question the next Film Discussion Group at GFT will take place Wednesday 11 May at 18.30 and the movies that will be discussed are: Little White Lies, How I Ended The Summer and Fast Five.
I hope you can make it :)
I came along this evening, first of all to meet the people that make up the group and also to access the group dynamic. To see of course, if it is something that I would like to be a part of.
I will see you all next month.
Hey im new here.
Im sam, how is everyone?
I look forwards to being a active memeber
I'm thinking of coming to the next group on 10th August, does anyone know what films will be discussed?
Thanks in advance
Sorry for the late response! Tomorrow's films for discussion are Arrietty, The Tree of Life and Beginners.
All the best,
Why is this meeting at the same time as the contemporary film course? Seems a shame we'll be discussing a better life upstairs at 6.30. We discussed tree of life a fortnight ago. Perhaps future courses should run on a different night?
I appreciate that this may be frustrating. The Film Discussion Group and the Contemp Cinema Course are quite different animals - the group is really an informal chat, guided by film critic Eddie Harrison, whereas the course is much more academic. Wednesday is the best day for Eddie to host the group which he does on a voluntary basis. It does meet all year round so you could always come along once the Contemp Cinema Course has finished.
Would like to come along to next discussion group on 14th September. What film will we be discussing?
The films for discussion on 14 Sept are The Skin I Live In, Project Nim and Sarah's Key. Hope you enjoy it!
Any thoughts on the films up for discussion on 12th October.
The films up for discussion next week are Drive, Melancholia and Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy.
What is up for discussion tomorrow (9th November)?
The films for discussion on 9 November (today - sorry for late reply) are Miss Bala, We Need to Talk About Kevin and Contagion.
Hope you manage to get along!
Please advise films for discussion on 14th Dec.

i was thinking about coming along to the discussion group on the 11th of september and was wondering what films are going to be discussed on that night?
Hi there. Just moved to the fab city for new job at Glasgow university so was looking for new exciting things to do. The film club seems like my kind of thing. I am free on Wednesday 11th if its ok to come along. I do have mobility requirements so wondered if you hold meetings in an accessible venue (ground floor or access with lift)
The films up for discussion on Wed 11 September are:
> Upstream Color
> Call Girl
> What Maisie Knew
Five films in one night - phew!
Welcome to Glasgow! I'm afraid that the Film Discussion Group meets in our Learning Room which is upstairs and does not currently have lift access. We're in the middle of a building redevelopment and our plans are to put in a lift in the future to make this area accessible. However, this will be part of the second stage of development which will take place in 2015.
I'm very sorry about this. I do hope you will come along and watch films at GFT instead. Our Screen 2 is on the ground floor and from the beginning of November we will also have a new Screen 3 on the ground floor and our Screen 1 will be accessible by lift.
I'm interested in coming along for the first time on the 9th October; can you let me know what is up for discussion? Thanks!
I recently moved to Glasgow to go to attend college, and currently don't know many people, and I really enjoy films and discussing film, so I was thinking about coming along.
Can you let me know which films are being discussed on the 9th of October.
The films being discussed at October's meeting are:
-The Great Beauty
Hope to see you there,
can you let me know which films will be discussed at the next meeting on 13/11? Is it OK to just come to the discussion group even if I haven't seen them, since i really enjoy cinema?
The film's being discussed at this month's meeting are:
-The Fifth Estate
Everyone is welcome to the group, so of course you can still attend, although it's probably advisable to have seen at least one of the films. Don't let it put you off if you haven't though!
I was hoping to attend the next meeting and was just wondering what the films up for discussion would be?
Next month's meeting will discuss:
Blue is the Warmest Colour
Saving Mr Banks
I used to come to the Discussion Group, and would really like to come again. We only watched one film though. Do you have to have watched all of them? I'm not saying it would be a hardship, just potentially difficult to fit in!
Everyone is welcome to attend the discussion group, whether they have seen all the films or not! It is just down to personal preference whether you think you would get something out of the group having just seen one film.
Happy new year everyone!
I'm hoping to head back after really enjoying the couple of meetings I was able to get to last year, can someone let me know what films are on the agenda for Wednesdays meet up, thanks!
Happy new year to you too!
This month's films are: American Hustle, All is Lost and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
I'd love to come to the discussion group but would struggle to make the start, how long do they last and do you think you would mind someone creeping in at the back a bit late....
It normally lasts around 2 hours. It's fine to come in late as it's a fairly informal event, however, space is limited and, as it's first come, first served, you won't necessarily be guaranteed a place.
Hope that helps,
Just wondering what the films we are to watch for the next meeting on the 12/02/14? Missed the last meeting, cheers,
Next month's meeting will discuss:
Wolf of Wall Street
The Book Thief
Inside Lewellyn Davis
12 Years a Slave
I'm very interested in joining the Film Discussion Group. Was wondering what films do we need to watch for next month? Also, do we need to have any background in cinema/film industry? I'm just a film lover, really. Nothing profession at all. Can you also please give the date/time it will be at?
The films being discussed at this month's group are Dallas Buyers Club, Her and The Invisible Woman.
You don't need any background in film industry - just a love of cinema! The next meeting is this Wednesday (12th March) at 6.30pm.
Was just wondering what films we are supposed to watch for the next meeting on the 9th April. Cheers,
The film's being discussed at April's meeting are Twenty Feet From Stardom, The Grand Hotel Budapest Hotel, Under The Skin and The Book Thief.
Hi Jane or other film discussion comrades,
I wondered if anyone could give me Eddie's email address, or pass my address on to him (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm interested in writing a thing or two about the group in a project about cinema culture.
All the best,
I should also say that if anyone has any interesting memories, or opinions on what the group means to them, I would really appreciate you firing me a wee email (email@example.com)
apologies folks, I have left the wrong email address; firstname.lastname@example.org (not .co.uk, oops) thanks again!
I was just wondering which films will be the topic of discussion this month?
