Friend Testimonial


We asked one of our Festival Friends to tell us more about their Friend membership experience:

“My wife and myself have been Festival Friends for many years now and what we like so much about it is the total immersion in great international movies (well known, less well known and totally unknown) and it always leads us to great discussions about what we saw afterwards. Many movies will eventually get to the cinemas and we say “well we saw that one already at the CFF”. We often do not realise that some of the movies are serious Oscar contenders (eg: ‘The Favourite’ in 2018 ) – that makes you feel great having been at the forefront of these occasions. Being a Festival Friend also provides great value for money as you can watch as much as you like for one fixed fee.”
