The Cambridge Film Festival to be held earlier than in previous years and will include a focus on the early silent films of Gerhard Lamprecht.

The 34th edition of the Cambridge Film Festival is being moved forward from its traditional dates in mid-September to the end of August. For its 2014 edition, the festival will run from Aug 28 to Sept 7 at the Arts Picturehouse and other venues in Cambridge.

Highlights from the 2014 programme include a focus on Gerhard Lamprecht. Marking the 50th anniversary of German film archive Deutsche Kinemathek, the early silent films of Gerhard Lamprecht - founder of the Kinemathek - have been digitally restored.

These titles include In The Slums Of Berlin (1925), Children Of No Importance (1926), People To Each Other (1926) and Under The Lantern (1928). The restored films, which centre on people on the margins of society, will be presented with new scores and live accompaniments by Guenter Buchwald.
