What is this?

  • Fresh2Film is a project designed to introduce film enthusiasts to its inner workings.

  • Throughout Michaelmas term you will be placed together with other people in a crew which will produce a short film to be shown at the Cambridge Shorts Festival in Lent.


  • You must be "Fresh-to-Film". No prior experience behind the camera in filmic terms.                                    (you can be a photographer for example, we will not crucify you if that is the case)

  • The short cannot be longer than 5min nor shorter than 2min. (Sorry no filmic odysseys for you yet)

  • Your film must adhere to up-to-date pandemic guidelines - check out the university and government web-pages for the current advice and information on distancing, you must follow these for your film to be considered for screening at the festival (#StaySafeCambridgeUni)

  • And lastly: be a team player.


  • Every crew will have access to the Equipment of CUFA

    • We will require the submission of a filming schedule to be able to organise and provide this service equally to every participating group.​

  • The Committee members will be available for consultation.

  • Should you feel misplaced or at odds with your crew please contact the Committee to rectify the situation and avoid any delays.

  • If requested we will do crew call outs if a key piece is missing within your line-up (for example: Actors).
