Cambridge Film Festival presents a season of PAY WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD events at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse cinema entitled “A Film I Love...” 


Each month a special guest will introduce a film which they love and explain why it means so much to them. 


We're thrilled to be able to announce the first three special guests and the films they love...

On Monday March 25th we welcome Poet Hollie McNish to the Arts Picturehouse. Hollie has chosen Gurinder Chada's BHAJI ON THE BEACH.


The following month on Monday April 29th, Maths Teacher and University Challenge star Bobby Seagull will present THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY.


Finally on Monday May 27th Classic FM presenter Tim Lihoreau will introduce cult classic WITHNAIL AND I and explain why it is his "A Film I Love..."



As a charity with the aim of bringing great films to as many people as possible, we are trialling a new PAY WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD ticket scheme for these exciting new events.

We hope that by removing the barrier of cost more people will be able to see these great films and hear why our special guests love them so much.

All tickets will be available on a sliding scale from FREE to £12 and you can chose what you pay based on your circumstances - you won’t be asked for any proof / ID. We just ask that you are honest.


Tickets are available NOW!

Tickets will also be available in person at the Arts Picturehouse Box Office.


We have created the table of information below to help explain the Pay What You Can Afford scheme and the sliding scale of prices. It is simply a guide that may help you decide what to pay.
