First Film Club

Sharing Excitement. Sharing Ideas. Sharing Community.

The FIRST FILM CLUB brings the film-loving community together to celebrate a diverse range of filmmakers by presenting the feature films that launched their careers.


Each screening event begins by showcasing the short film of an exciting, emerging filmmaker followed by the main presentation of an established director’s debut feature.


After both films have screened, guests will want to stick around for a special live Q&A where the directors will discuss their films and provide an insightful breakdown of the process, struggles and successes associated with the art of moviemaking.



Founded by Hanna Flint (critic, broadcaster and author) and Natalie Louise (film & television producer), the FIRST FILM CLUB celebrates directorial debuts, showcasing the early work of new and established filmmaking talent. We screen a debut short film from an emerging director alongside the feature debut of an established director followed by a Q&A with both filmmakers to discuss their craft, their inspiration and what the future holds.

All FIRST FILM CLUB events include a relaxed post screening reception where guests can connect with like-minded film fans and industry peers.
