About CFS

The Chiltern Film Society runs a season of 15 international independent films, shown on selected Wednesdays, from September to May, at The Elgiva Theatre in Chesham, Buckinghamshire.

The Chiltern Film Society is run by a committee of volunteers and was founded in 1969. We are proud to say that our 2021–2022 season is our 53rd and we are still growing! Once chosen, our programme of films are then booked and shown by the Elgiva as part of their public screenings, with guaranteed admission for Chiltern Film Society members for the 1.30pm or 8pm showings.

Members receive programme notes and an email requesting feedback after each screening. This forms our ‘members’ ratings’ for each film.

Non-members may also attend Chiltern Film Society screenings at the full theatre price, depending on availability. For non-member ticket queries please contact The Elgiva direct.
