The Cambridge Film Trust (CFT) is a registered charity that fosters film culture and education for the benefit of the public, in Cambridge, the Eastern region and throughout the UK.
We believe passionately in the power of film to change lives and make the world a better place. It can expose people to new perspectives and ideas, aiding cross-cultural understanding and contributing to community engagement and well being.
We deliver a year-round portfolio of independent and specialised film screenings, and events across the UK. The centrepiece of which is the prestigious Cambridge Film Festival, one of the most well-respected events in the UK festival calendar, which was founded in 1977.
Our primary objectives are:
To enrich people's lives, by exposing them to exciting and innovative cinema which has the power to change people's perspectives in enjoyable, educational and memorable ways;
To foster high quality independent cinema from around the world with an emphasis on diverse storytelling and meaningful on-screen representation of characters, themes and narratives, that would not otherwise be accessible;
To champion the cultural value of film and ensure that everyone has access to it, no matter what their gender, race, age, disability, sexual orientation or social background.

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
