Cineworld Cinema Closures - Statement

front of the arts picturehouse cinema Cambridge


We at Cambridge Film Festival note with great sadness the developments at Cineworld, and particularly the devastating effect that the closure of Picturehouse cinemas will have on our friends and colleagues in Cambridge and around the UK.

We have worked closely with the wonderful, hardworking, and dedicated team at Cambridge for many years and are thinking especially of them at this very difficult time.

We have always believed that our role as a film festival is to support the amazing independent British and world cinema that we and our audiences love, and clearly there has never been a more vital time to support independent film than now.

We will be doing everything we can to support both great film and our cinema friends at this time.


The Cambridge Film Festival Team.
