Bright Film Society holds its screenings for members at the very charming, Sun Bright Cinema.

The Bright Film Society started in 2006 and continues a long tradition of “moving pictures” in Bright. In 1913 the first moving picture was screened in our town and since then there have been a number of cinemas in different venues.

In 2015 a new cinema was created within a building owned by the Shire and this presented a golden opportunity for the film society to move from the RSL rooms to a purpose-built venue.

In 2020 Sun Bright Cinemas bought the cinema and the film society continues to enjoy its world-class facilities with monthly screenings.

Film Selection

Our movies are chosen by the Committee with input from members. We seek to offer movies from different genres and countries, keeping in mind the interests and expectations of members, while complementing the programmes offered by Sun Bright Cinema.

In essence our film society seeks to offer a wide range of movies in a welcoming and social venue for members of our very dynamic community.

The Bright Film Society is a member of the Federation of Victorian Film Societies.


Membership is currently $90 per annum for 10 movies on the third Tuesday night of the months February to November.
