Cambridge City FC Film
Cambridge City FC film to be screened at Arts Picturehouse
To celebrate Cambridge City Football Club’s past, present and future, the Cambridge KickstART project is inviting supporters and families to enjoy a free screening of the short film ‘Service Movement Desire’.
Showing at the Arts Picturehouse on Sunday October 26th at 5.20pm, the film includes beautifully shot footage of the giant, animated running footballer, which was recently projected on to buildings along Milton Road and Histon Road, all the way to the Histon football grounds.
The animation pays tribute to City’s former Milton Road grounds, and is woven together with emotive soundbites from supporters talking about their beloved club.
Another short film will show footage of City’s final match at Milton Road, giving supporters a chance to spot themselves on the big screen. The film is the creation of Zoё Chamberlain, in collaboration with animator James Conan Baker, Colour Films and ADeC.
Zoe said: “Service Movement Desire symbolises new beginnings for the Milton Road site and the football club. Supporters should join us for this fantastic event. It is an opportunity to reminisce, share stories and get excited about the future. Everyone is welcome though – not just City fans. I think the film will appeal to anyone. Colour films and James Conan Baker have created a stylish, witty, yet poignant film.”
City Chairman Kevin Satchell said: “I am delighted that this project has embraced the history of our former home of Milton Road. For many of our supporters, the stadium provided so many memories, and this animation provides an interesting reflection on both our time at the ground, and our journey since vacating last year. It is even more symbolic given the news that we now have a permanent home in Sawston. I am hopeful that many of our fans will attend the screening which will give them the opportunity to reflect on the past and look forward to a healthy future at our new home.”
KickstART is funded by the award-winning house builder Crest Nicholson to help foster community pride and enhance a sense of place.
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director, Crest Nicholson Eastern, commented: “Having had a sneak preview of the film, I can say it’s a fitting tribute to the site’s history as well as a wonderful way to welcome in a new era for the ground. We’re very pleased to support the latest initiative as part of the KickstART project and it should be a wonderful evening’s entertainment for all who attend.”
Other activities at the event include children’s art activity,a prize draw to win a Cambridge City souvenir, and an opportunity to see the ‘Light Rider’ bike, which projected the animation.
Service Movement Desire is screened as part of Curating Cambridge and The Festival of Ideas.
