Another great Festival

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

cfflogo Once again this year, we provided editorial services for the Cambridge Film Festival brochure and handled press and PR for the event.

It was a fantastic eleven days, as always, bookended by visits from directors David Frankel (DEVIL WEARS PRADA, HOPE SPRINGS) and Robert Guediguian (SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO) on opening night (13 Sept), and Mat Whitecross (ASHES, SEX & DRUGS & ROCK & ROLL) on closing night (23 Sept). We had UK and world premieres, a plethora of Hitchcock’s in brand new prints, outdoor screenings in weird and wonderful settings (e.g. Cambridge University Library steps), films with live accompaniment and even a Lego Ninja (long story…).

My own personal highlight was meeting and chatting with writer and critic (and utter delight) George Perry, who knew many of the greats and reminisced about Hitchcock and James Stewart. A rare pleasure.

Many thanks to all at Cambridge News and BBC Radio Cambridgeshire for providing such great coverage.
