Welcome to the Reel People Films Home Page

For those of you who don't know us, we are a community film group based in Kilmersdon in Somerset, about 30 minutes southwest of Bath and 15 minutes northwest of Frome on the B3139. We formed in 1998 and in our first 10 years won four national awards including Best UK Film Group on two separate occasions.

Everyone is welcome at Reel People Films – you can come along as a guest for £6 on the door or you can join us for the whole season of 8 films – see Membership Information here.

We run a season of films each year from the Autumn through to the Spring – we aim to show films which may not have been shown locally or have passed you by. There's always a wide variety with hopefully, something for everyone. We show films in the English language and films from around the world which might introduce you to a different look at life or culture and these films are subtitled. In the past we have also run a themed event outside the main season when we serve food and might have live music before the film.

You can check out our programme for the 2023/24 Season here or download it here.

Membership of Reel People costs £30 per person and gives free entry to all 8 main season films.

All film screenings take place at Kilmersdon Village Hall, BA3 5TB on our giant screen in HD or UHD with 5.1 surround sound. Films start at 8pm but the doors and bar open at 7.15pm so you can choose your seat and have a drink and a chat before the film. The bar offers a selection of wines, beers, ciders and soft drinks. We also serve coffee and tea.

There is parking available directly outside the Village Hall with some further spaces available on the old garage forecourt to the right-hand side of the Hall. You can also park on-street elsewhere in the village. Click here to view a map of potential parking areas.

If you haven't been to one of our film screenings, do give us a try – we guarantee you a warm and friendly welcome and if you haven't been for a while then we would love to see you again.

You can give us a call on 07947 325 950 or drop us an email at reelpeoplefilms@outlook.com

Last film of the season

We are closing our season on Friday 12 April 2024 with One Life (Cert 12A, 1hr 49mins, UK).

Still from One Life

The film tells the remarkable story of the humanitarian, Nicholas Winton who helped hundreds of children escape German–occupied Czechoslovakia on the eve of World War II. This is a poignant and emotional film brought to life by a tremendous cast headed by Anthony Hopkins with Helena Bonham-Carter and Johnny Flynn.

Members Free. Guests very welcome - £6 on the door - Cash or Card payments accepted.
