Cambridge Film Festival @ Cambridge - various venues

It’s a celebration of film – past present and future. So, it’s a chance to relive and enjoy past glories, but also to see what’s happening in film right now, and reveal new talents who will shape the future of cinema. A good example of that is a chap who had his student short selected for the programme here back in 1996, named Christopher Nolan. Apparently he’s done quite well since! Of course it’s also a chance to see films from around the world, from other countries and cultures, many of which we might not otherwise come into contact with. And it’s all brought to our doorstep.

It brings the people who make the films here, too, of course, so it’s a chance to meet and put your questions to actors, writers and directors. What makes Cambridge different from other Festivals is that it attracts big names but is nonetheless intimate and approachable. There are no red carpets, no banks of flashbulbs going off, and the chances are the acclaimed director of the much anticipated new film you’re about to see is happily hanging out in the bar, just like you! Our audiences like that – the filmmakers actually love it, too.

Another particular quest of ours is outdoor screenings, or screenings in unusual places. We show films on Grantchester Meadows and at Jesus Green Lido and work with additional new venues around Cambridgeshire and beyond each year to produce unique, memorable events in special places. Cambridge itself is special and unique, with amazing spaces that are just crying out to be used and enjoyed creatively.
