About TAKE ONE
Cambridge Picturehouse Review and Official Cambridge Film Festival Publication
TAKE ONE is an independent film magazine and website run by volunteers. We cover the best in independent and festival cinema year round and every September we are responsible for the full, comprehensive coverage of the Cambridge Film Festival.
TAKE ONE evolved in 2011 from the original Cambridge Film Festival Daily as the official source of news, reviews and interviews on all films screened during the Cambridge Film Festival. The first hard copy issue of TAKE ONE was distributed around Cambridge on September 8th 2011, and the website officially launched in November 2011 and runs throughout the year.
Film festivals we have covered include the Edinburgh Film Festival, Cambridge African Film Festival, London Korean Film Festival, Brighton Film Festival, Norwich Film Festival and Aesthetica short film festival in York. We also covered the British Silent Film Festival in print as well as online, and from here on we will continue to keep you abreast of all things cinema, whilst reporting back from events and film festivals around the world.
On this site you will find a complete archive of all reviews and interviews from the Cambridge Film Festival, including interviews with John Hurt, Gary Oldman, Paddy Considine and Nicholas Winding Refn – not to mention film makers and actors you maybe haven’t met yet such as Jos Stelling and Marc Senter.
We promise that we will do our best to do our duty to film makers and film lovers, to entertain, encourage and inform, and never to carp at or crap on good, honest film. Stick around, chums.
