Who can be an FVFS member?

There are three types of members recognised by the FVFS. Click each one below to find out more.


Any non-profit organization with appropriate aims — dedicated to film screening, appreciation, and study — may become a member of the FVFS. This includes film societies, film clubs, film groups, NPV (non-profit, volunteer-run) cinemas and NPV film festivals.

An FVFS member will generally be an independent self-contained organization.

But a group which operates under a parent organisation, which is non-profit and has suitable aims and rules, may also become an FVFS member.

More specific details of requirements for joining the FVFS can be found on our Resources page.

Please check the various Information Sheets on that page and contact us if you have any questions.
