N.B. The Cambridge Film Festival is operated by the Cambridge Film Trust (registered charity no. 1120059). We therefore regret that Picturehouse gift vouchers and Membership free tickets cannot be redeemed for Festival screenings. There will also be no Meerkat Movies, Kids’ Club or Silver Screen offers for the duration of the Festival.

I'm seeing more than one film. Can I get a discount?

See below for details of our Festival Pass.

Festival Passes

The Festival Pass costs £30 and buys you £40 worth of tickets  - a significant 25% saving!

And you can also apply your usual Arts Picturehouse membership discount when purchasing tickets for even bigger savings.

Ask the Arts Picturehouse staff or Festival volunteers about Festival Passes when purchasing tickets.     

Only available for purchase at the cinema.

Once you have your Festival Pass card, we recommend purchasing Festival tickets in advance of your chosen screenings/events to avoid disappointment.

Please note that Festival Passes are only able to be used in-person.
