Media Coverage good media coverage in the national and regional press

Evaluation The Cambridge Film Festival is an important regional film festival, firmly established alongside London and Edinburgh. The festival receives good media coverage not only in the regional press but also in the national newspapers. The new launch of AMPLIFY! Film Festival is a collaboration with three other regional UK film festivals (Film Bath, Cinecity (Brighton) & Cornwall) to create an online festival, bringing further distinct voices to a wider audience across the UK.
