London Fields Free Film Festival Programme Revealed

The programme has been announced for this year’s London Fields Free Film Festival, which takes place 17th – 26th October 2014.

The brand new festival aims to attract and bring together local audiences to enjoy a ten day celebration of cinema at a number of venues across London Fields. The festival will showcase an eclectic collection of features, documentaries, shorts, animation and experimental films, with a special focus on Hackney/London based themes and filmmakers.

Every event is free and the whole festival is organised by local volunteers. The full programme is at www.freefilmfestivals.org with highlights including:

  • Under The Cranes, a meditation on the multicultural social history of Hackney, followed by Q&A with Director Emma-Louise Williams and poet Michael Rosen
  • An afternoon marathon at Hackney Attic with films that feature the hottest man in Hollywood, Ryan Gosling – two of the films will be voted for in a heated online poll on the festival’s Facebook page
  • The ultimate party of the festival with a triple bill of the East End’s infamous Sink The Pink followed by DJ sets
  • An evening of style splendour with Advanced Style & Student Fashion Shorts plus Q&A at the London College of Fashion on Mare St.

London Fields is known across the city for its quirky arts and cultures scene, from the bustle of Broadway Market with its books and broad cuisines to the indie films of Hackney Picturehouse. The festival aims to pay tribute to the talent of the area and engage its diverse community with free events taking place across a range of classic and new venues in the local area, to bring the neighbourhood together in a fun and free environment.

To help us raise money to cover our license costs and equipment hire we are currently setting up a small Kickstarter campaign. Any donations are more than welcome.
