Mike Reiss, writer of The Simpsons, said CPIFF is the “best film festival we’ve ever been to - and we've been to a lot".

As well as this, CPIFF looks for young London filmmakers, gets them screened and into paid work experience - that has previously led to full time employment.

With animation night, sci-fi, horror, documentaries, feature length and short film, the 2022 full programme is now online.
