Evaluation The Cambridge Film Festival is an important film festival, firmly established alongside London and Edinburgh. This year’s Festival, which celebrates its 40th anniversary – making it the third longest running film festival in the country – is set to go ahead as an in-person event at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse. The festival receives good media coverage in the regional press. The Festival is also hosting CFF at Home, its first ever solo UK-wide digital programme between 21 November - 5 December, giving audiences right across the country the opportunity to see many of the films they cannot see elsewhere or have not yet been released.
