The History of
Cambridge Film Festival
The Festival is the 3rd longest running in the UK, with this year marking 40 years since its inauguration in 1977.
CFF has grown a lot over forty years, and it continues to be a celebration of film - past, present and future - as well as a champion of everything that is great about cinema.
To celebrate the past 4 decades we're going to bring you 40 years of Festival history as we count down to the start of this year's Festival.
Each day of the countdown we will post memories of the Festival, starting with the first Festival in 1977, going through to the present day.
If you have any memories, photos or stories of your own that you would like to share, then we'd love for you to get in touch!
