coldfusion cffile get image name

I have a cffile that allows a user to upload an image. How to I grab the image name by itself without the temp path so I can store it in the database????

for example:
<cffile action="UPLOAD" filefield="form.file" destination="D:\Hosting\knicknoc\thinkboxstudios\admin\events\#session.folderpath#\images\#form.file#.jpg" nameconflict="makeunique">  

this doesnt work because form.file shows the whole path from the temp file. How do I just get the name of the image itself???
