Members of the first-ever Film Club at Gorey School of Art came together to celebrate the end of a successful season with a special screening of the Palme D'Or winning satire The Square.

'Why not celebrate,' said film club organiser Deirdre Robinson. 'We have had a fantastic first season showcasing the best independent, Irish and international cinema to our enthusiastic members.'

The members were also joined by the movies starring primate - The Bonobo, who makes a surprise appearance in the satirical drama film to create a wildness to it.

While the Film Club is now on recess for the summer, Deirdre promises it will be back mid-September with another packed programme of films from across the cinematic spectrum.

Director of Gorey School of Art Paul Carter is thrilled with the success of the new venture. Given the popularity of the Club they have made an additional number of memberships available for season two.

'We have continued our commitment to keeping the cost of membership as affordable as possible,' said Paul. 'Anyone interest in joining us in September should get in contact now while places still remain.'

Gorey Film Club screenings are every Thursday fortnight at 7.30 p.m. at Periphery Space at Gorey School of Art. The autumn programme will be announced at the end of August.

Season is €35 and annual membership is €99. Available to buy at
