CUFF is an independent festival that provides an opportunity for students from all three universities in Canterbury – the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University and the University for the Creative Arts – to come together through their love of filmmaking. The festival will see a series of short films screened at the Curzon Cinema in Canterbury on the Sunday.

On Saturday, there will be a panel discussing the process of developing from student to professional filmmaker at Waterstones Rose Lane in Canterbury at 6pm.
