This year's Cambridge Film Festival kicked off in style with last night's press launch. The Cambridge Film Festival always finds innovative ways of presenting cinema and this year is no exception: starting next week, you'll be able to board a punt in Grantchester and be chauffeured down the Cam, taking in a selection of short films at strategically sited screens along the way.
I was on hand to document the night for the festival and, as festival photographer, I'll be posting pictures on my blog throughout the festival. You can find out more about the festival on the Cambridge Film Festival website.
