La Haine

Cinema fans will be able to enjoy the Cambridge Film Festival in person for its 40th anniversary this year, after organisers announced a return to its traditional format alongside an extended online programme.

The event will run between November 25 and 18 at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, and feature a diverse programme of more than 40 films, and promises UK premieres of new features, classic retrospectives, insightful documentaries, discovery titles from the global stage, family favourites, an eclectic array of short films, and several international film festival winners.

The festival has also launched a new friends and patrons scheme for people to support the festival, with perks including advance notification of events, invitations to the opening night gala, and exclusive patron’s events.

Leading up to the autumn festival, the Cambridge Film Festival at Home initiative continues through June with online film events offered on a pay-what-you-can-afford pricing structure.

Highlights include writer and broadcaster Anna Bogutskaya talking about A Film I Love and focusing on Pedro Almodóvar’s 1999 film All About My Mother; and Mathieu Kassovitz’s cult classic La Haine.

Film events can be viewed via the CFF at Home screening room.
