Fifth annual report of the Film Society, 1930

The Film Society in London was established in 1925 to enable "people interested in the cinema an opportunity of seeing films which were not otherwise available to them" through the commercial cinema - what might now be referred to as arthouse films. As well as screenings of European, US and Japanese films, the Society also ran study-groups on aspects of film theory - in the year that this report covers, the guest lecturers had been the pioneering Russian film director Sergei Eisenstein and the German avant-garde artist and experimental film maker Hans Richter.
