UK festival to run Sept 3-13 at venues across Cambridge.

Cambridge Film Festival has announced that its 35th edition will run Sept 3-13 at the Arts Picturehouse and other venues in Cambridge.

The UK’s third longest-running film festival will be preceded by two events based around the river Cam: ‘Movies on the Meadow’, two nights of open-air cinema on the banks of the river Cam, and ‘Cinema on the River’, a unique opportunity to experience cinema whilst being punted along the Cam.

Last year’s festival saw an increase in both screenings - 220 screenings of 170 films across four venues with over 30 UK premieres - and attendance with total admissions up to nearly 13,000, up 2,300 on 2013.

Cambridge Film Festival is operated by the charitable Cambridge Film Trust and funded by BFI Film Forever.
