Suggest a film

Teignmouth Film Society bases its film selection on titles suggested and voted for by its members. We are therefore keen to know of any films you’d like us to screen for our next season.

We’ve closed the film suggestions for 2019/20 now. Please come along to our Film Selection Night on 18th January to help choose the new programme!

To check what films we’ve already shown, have a look at our Screened films and Past programmes pages.

You will be asked to add your name and email address but your email won’t be displayed on the site. Please note that your suggestion won’t appear until after it has been moderated.
