London, England: East End Film Festival 2006


The East End Film Festival (EEFF) brings a week long series of unique film-inspired experiences to venues across east London, challenging our perceptions not only of cinema, but of the East End itself.

Expect to see the best of the UK�s hot young talent, plus some of the most established and skilled filmmakers in the industry today all coming together at the festival to promote independent cinema and the East End. The festival screenings will take place at several local cinemas during April 27 through May 4.

The EEFF welcomes first-time director and acclaimed stage and screen actor Richard E. Grant as their Director in Residence. The festival opens with Grant�s semi-autobiographical drama Wah-Wah, the story of a disintegrating family set against the background of Swaziland�s approach to Independence at the tail end of the Sixties � a �coming of age at the end of an age� story.

Other highlights of the festival include: Rockumentary Britannica, a short documentary program showcasing the cutting edge of East London�s music scene presented by Halloween Short Film Festival, a day devoted to documentary hosted by FourDocs, animation workshops including a glimpse �behind the veil� at Tim Burton�s Corpse Bride, and a whole host of UK premieres and exclusive screenings from around the globe, programmed by the ICO.
