A Different Film Society.

We at DreamWorks Society want to:

  • Encourage a discussion of the film industry both in live action and animation. In terms of their handling of economic, political, and social issues.
  • Promote films and projects to the people of St Andrews and the wider population.
  • Promote the filmmaking community by providing an avenue for like minded individuals to come together under the banner of film.

Which essentially means we will watch whatever people want to watch. Why can't there be more than one real film society? Why do we have to force ourselves to sit down and watch whatever the establishment constitutes as quote unquote good films? That's why we at DreamWorks Society wants to challenge that. Why can't we see artistic merit in "Boo! A Madea Halloween" or the Michael Bay's Transformers franchise (Michael Bay has two movies in the Criterion collection for good reason. Quentin tarantino has none)?


So why don't you grab a couple of friends and come on down to one of our events?



Here are some of our main events throughout the year:

  • Watch Parties - We'll watch literally anything you send us and talk about it. From art house to film in the "great film canon" to even films from our namesake. Practically nothing is off the table.
  • Discussions & Debates - Grab a drink or something to eat and chat about your favorite films. It's a discussion of the film industry. Talking about things from craft to political, economic or social issues in the media.
  • Fan Content Appreciation Night - Once a year, we get together and showcase stuff from each other. Whether that be short film or scripts or anything under the sun.
