Membership & Committee

Each season, FISH shows 11 quality films of varied genres from a diverse range of world cultures. Each month (except January, when there is no film), members may attend either of two screenings: Sunday at 10.00 am or the following Tuesday at 8.15 pm.

FISH is independent of the Empire and its film programs but we are very grateful for the support given by the Empire Cinema, Bowral, where all our films are screened.

Each month, a Newsletter is sent to all members by email or post. It contains the film program, reviews and information to enhance your membership experience.


The membership renewal and new applications period for 2018/2019 will commence at the end of March.

At the end of March, RENEWING MEMBERS will receive in the mail a renewal form which, for successful renewal, must be received by FISH by Friday 20 April, 6.00 pm.

Can we renew early if we are away when renewals are due?

We regret that FISH membership renewals cannot be processed early to accommodate members who are away during the renewal period.

However, we do appreciate anyone who has taken the time to contact us and have noted your records accordingly.

Along with others who will be away at renewal time, you need to take one of the following options.

1. If you normally pay by Direct Debit, arrange a future dated payment and also send your full name[s] and contact details by email to: or post to P.O. Box 1330 Bowral 2576 advising that you have arranged the payment.


2. Send a post-dated cheque with your full name[s] and contact details to P.O. Box 1330 Bowral 2576.

We hope for your understanding in this matter, as in order to comply with The Empire’s request to limit FISH membership and also to make the renewal procedure fair for all, the Committee processes all renewals on a single day.

NEW MEMBERSHIP applications can be made from Friday 27 April 6.00 pm and the deadline for receipt by FISH is Friday 11 May 6.00 pm. Starting on Friday 27 April 6.00 pm, forms will be available online (on this page below) or from the Empire Cinema, until the application deadline. The online form can be downloaded, typed into and emailed to; alternatively, the online form or the form from the Empire can be filled in by hand and mailed to FISH, PO Box 1330 Bowral NSW 2576.
