The Cambridge African Film Festival is the longest-running African film festival in the United Kingdom.


Initiated in May 2002 by a small group of graduate students at the University of Cambridge with the aim to screen the best contemporary African films - providing a UK audience for African filmmakers, increasing knowledge and awareness of African and black culture in the country, and thereby offering an important counterbalance to the Western stereotypical view of Africa.

Fondly referred to as 'CAFF', the Festival is sustained each year by dedicated volunteers and a Board whose expertise is far reaching.
