“eclectic local film society with a London wide appeal” – TIME OUT

“a formidable campaigning group” – CINEMA BUSINESS

The McGuffin Film & Television Society is a fully independent community organisation dedicated to the promotion of classic, arthouse, cult and unusual film and TV in the local area. The Society is committed to screening material that is not normally found in mainstream commercial cinemas and which reflects the rich cultural diversity of the local population. The Society is also concerned with the protection of cinema buildings generally and the preservation of Waltham Forest’s EMD Cinema as an important historical, architectural and cultural landmark. The Society and its activities are financed solely by membership fees, individual donations and its own fundraising endeavours.
