Brock University Film Society

BUFS screens Thursdays at 7 p.m. in collaboration with The Film House at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre (PAC). 

Screenings will take place at the downtown St. Catharines theatre over the course of 11 weeks – and cinema buffs will not want to miss a scene. 

“BUFS provides the opportunity to see these critically acclaimed, award-winning films on the big screen in Niagara that you might not otherwise be able to see. It’s a chance to talk film and keep the vibe of film culture alive in Niagara.”

— Scott Henderson, Film Professor


Our BUFS 2018-2019 season truly has been fantastic. We got the opportunity to screen many, many outstanding films, and they played to impressive crowds, including quite a few sold-out shows, and a number of other near sell-outs (like last night’s screening of “Vice”). We thank you for your incredible support during this transitional year.
We would also like to thank the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film and the Faculty of Social Sciences at Brock University for their continued backing, as well as their moral support.
Thank you to Stephen Remus, Barry Grant, Joan Nicks and the rest of the Film House’s board for inviting us to join forces with them. It really has been a pleasure!
Thank you, too, to the staff of the Film House and the Performing Arts Centre for being so friendly and accommodating. And a special shout-out to Ernest Harris, Jr., who was a steady hand in the projection booth throughout the year.
But, once again, we’d especially like to thank YOU, our BUFS members and supporters. You’ve been amazing all year long. I said it last night, and I’ll say it again: It’s wonderful to see that quality cinema and cinephilia are alive and well right in the heart of St. Catharines.
We look forward to seeing you again in September, when our 2019-2020 season begins.
And keep in mind that the Film House’s outstanding programming continues on unabated this spring and summer, as it always does.
Bon cinéma!

Season Opener
BUFS launches its Winter 2019 program on Jan. 17 with Spike Lee’s brilliant, incendiary and poignant BlacKKKlansman, one of the 2018’s most celebrated films and a film that placed Lee (and his body of work) back in the limelight. 

Chance to win film-related prizes every BUFS screening.
