Moonlight, (dir. by Barry Jenkins) will be showing at 6:30pm at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse. 

Tickets are only £4.99 for under 25s.

This is part of our Intro to Cinema series: a taster into aspects of independent cinema that you may not have had a chance to explore before or that you would like a refresher in. 

I’ve attached an event poster to this email, should you wish to share on your college socials. If you can, we’d really appreciate it if you could add the following tags: 

Facebook: @ArtsPicturehouse

Instagram: @campicturehouse

Twitter: @CamPicturehouse

Our own tag is @waterspritefilm on all channels.

Here’s also the links to the promotional trailer and a Facebook page for the event.

Education Resources 

Get to know the “Education Resources” tab on the Fitz MCR webpage!
This is a one-stop page which consolidates quick-access links to various academic databases and software that might be useful across different types of courses – not just those on which Cambridge already has institutional licenses for, but also others where one can request directly for a free educational/academic license!

Have any ideas or suggestions on what databases or software to include here? Simply drop an email to mcr.academic@fitz.cam.ac.uk – this page is non-exhaustive and will have rolling updates!

Fitz MCR Charity

This year the MCR are supporting a local charity – Jimmy’s Cambridge – who support the homeless community in Cambridge. Please consider making a donation through our Just Giving page. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/MCR-Treasurer
