Ticket information

When do tickets go on sale?

Saturday 6 October 2018.


Where/how can I buy tickets?

Tickets for all films and events can be purchased in advance from:

  • This website (choose your film/event then use the booking panel)
  • In person and online at The Light for screenings at The Light and at the Arts Picturehouse for screenings at Arts Picturehouse and Emmanuel College.


Picturehouse & Infinity Membership Discounts.

Picturehouse and Infinity members can claim discounts for screenings after 5pm at their respective venues.

The Cambridge Film Festival is operated independently by the Cambridge Film Trust. We therefore regret that Membership free tickets or any other vouchers or discounts cannot be redeemed for Festival screenings. 

See below for details of our Festival Pass and other discounts.


Festival Passes - Available from the Arts Picturehouse.

The Festival pass is a great way to see the films you love and save money.

You pay just £30.00 for the pass and it buys you £40.00 worth of Festival tickets.

You can also apply your usual Arts Picturehouse membership discount when purchasing tickets for even bigger savings. Once you have your Festival Pass, we recommend purchasing Festival tickets in advance of your chosen screenings/events to avoid disappointment.

Please note that Festival Passes can ONLY be used to purchase tickets from the Arts Picturehouse meaning the Festival Pass can only be used for screenings at Arts Picturehouse and Emmanuel college and cannot be used for screenings at The Light.

Festival Passes can’t be used online or at any other venues.
