Next Film

7th January 2015
Wadjda (2012) 100 minutes (sub)
Director: Haifaa al-Mansour, Saudi Arabia

Wadjda wants to own and ride a bike. But will she be allowed to? She’s a girl, after all. In a revealing first feature film made by a Saudi woman inside the country, a veil is lifted on a fundamentally religious and patriarchal society which restricts the role of women.

Silkscreen Film Society News

22nd November 2014
In March, at the end of this season, we really need someone to help produce the Silkscreen leaflet (whose pictures and film summaries then go on the website)…

Welcome to Silkscreen

Details of films to be shown during our new season beginning in September can be found via the "What's On" link at the top of this page.  Last years members will receive a new programme and subscription renewal in the post in late July.  Online membership will be available from the same time.


Silkscreen Film Society is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers on behalf of its members. Set up in 2001 by a small group of enthusiasts, the Society now has well over 400 members and has established itself as the focal point for people in the area who want to see a wide range of the best films from around the world.
Chosen by a small team of members, films are selected because they have exceptional qualities of direction, acting or cinematography. Our programme runs from September to March and we have two showings, usually at 5.30 and 8.00 pm, on designated evenings.
Films are projected on state of the art digital equipment in a 250-seat auditorium in Macclesfield’s historic Heritage Centre, close to excellent parking areas and restaurants.
