“We have come a long way since 1977 when the Festival was born in the old Arts Cinema in Market Passage. Year after year, it has rapidly expanded into a major UK event with reputation that extends internationally.

“The Festival Team recognise that independent cinema is suffering continual pressure to even become noticed in the huge expansion of US led commercial fare. Screen space and media coverage are certainly difficult to get these days, but we take pride in the fact that Cambridge’s film culture is thriving – the year-round screenings of independent films and the wide-ranging Festival events programme find a home at the Arts Picturehouse.

“We have been very fortunate to have a most eclectic rosters of filmmakers visit – Francesco Rosi, Percy Adlon, Michael Powell, Wim Wenders, Jerzy Skolimowski, Philip Kaufman, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Bruce Weber, Monika Treut, Michael Winterbottom, Andrew Eaton, Terry Gilliam, Cate Blanchett, Julie Delpy, Joel Schumacher, Peter Greenaway, Stephen Woolley and Neil Jordan among many who find Cambridge friendly, challenging and committed to a world cinema.”
