The Hamlets Pop-Up Cinema to support the East End Film Festival

The Hamlets Pop-Up Cinema team meet with one of the organisers of the East End Film Festival, 9 Dec. 2017

Last month, the team behind The Hamlets Pop-Up Cinema met with one of the organisers of the East End Film Festival  to discuss ways in which to work together. Hot on the agenda was the EEFF’s plans for 2018 and how local residents can support this prestigious event on their doorstep, including inputting on the world cinema films that are screened.

The Festival has been running annually since 2000 and is one of the UK’s largest film events. Its mission is “to discover, support, and exhibit pioneering work by global and local independent filmmakers, and to introduce viewers to innovative and challenging cinematic experiences”.

Taking up temporary residence in venues across several East London boroughs, including Tower Hamlets, each year the EEFF presents a rich and diverse programme of international premieres, industry master-classes, free pop-up screenings and immersive live events.

As a community cinema project based in the London Borough of Town Hamlets, The Hamlets Pop-Up Cinema is keen to support and get involved with EEFF. Watch this space for more details about how we will be involved, along with information about the Festival programme, which will take place in April 2018.

Launched in September 2017, The Hamlets Pop-Up Cinema is a community cinema project managed by film charity Balik Arts and funded by Tower Hamlets Council as part of its Thriving High Streets programme.

And for those living or working in Tower Hamlets, there’s also an opportunity to join our team of volunteers and receive free training on how to run your own community cinema.
