The Queen’s Film Society

The Queen’s Film Society fosters the art of cinema and creates a vibrant film culture in a communal setting. We bring new and classic films of artistic and social significance to the community, presenting them as quality cinematic experiences. ​

The Queen’s Film Society does this not only by presenting movies to the community that would otherwise not be shown on a big screen in the Brazos Valley, but also by publishing members’ film analysis and criticism, and engaging with, promoting, and screening the work of local filmmakers.
