Cambridge Film Festival Celebrate 35 Years

Art & Culture

After a heavy weekend out all we want to do is sit in front of a film and eat a Pot Noodle (Other terrible snacks available – Ed.) right? The Cambridge Film Festival has got it spot on for its 35th anniversary then.

With movies on the meadows, running from 29th-31st August; BAFTA kids workshops and films spread accross Cambridge's Arts Picturehouse, a 3 screen cinema in the heart of the city, there will be films that you haven't heard of from small independant picture houses and directors and bigger, more popular films for you to sit back and glue your sorry, bloodshocked eyes to. 

The festival, running from 3rd-13th September, will be showing 7 world premiers and 55 UK premieres and visitors to the festival will be able to sit in a punt along the river and watch the films from the boats. Dr Brian May will be hosting a talk for a special 3D evening as well as a DJ set from Additive TV after the screening of Back To The Future in the Meadows on Sunday 30th August. This year there are many family films for the whole family to enoy as part of a family day out. The festival will show titles such as: Charlie And Lola, The Gruffalo, Infinitely Polar Bear and the UK premiere of Palio for the closing night of the festival. Get your snacks ready for a long 10-days of film-filled-fun.
