Cutting-East 2013

Cutting East Film Festival

Friday 28th June  to Sunday 30th June: Genesis Cinema, Mile End Road, E1

Cutting East Film Festival is a youth led programme exploring current issues in East London such as stereotypes and identity. Encouraging youth messages to be heard by everyone, and inviting people from different backgrounds to come together, Cutting East shows that as a community we can celebrate youth achievement, watch film and have a great time.

Programmed by the Cutting East steering group, a small team of young people who all live and study inEast London, we aim to bring together a range of movies, performance art, slam poetry workshops, live music and community events. We hope this festival might inspire youth to do something more with their talents, ideas and goals. Different perspectives are brought together to reflect our lives, what we love and what changes we can make to society.

Cutting East is a chance for aspiring film makers and fans to look into film and learn more, to become motivated about films and the film industry and have fun.  The festival brings together interests and hobbies around film to share, explore, celebrate and debate.

Cutting East will be bring together a Programme of features, shorts, documentaries, dramas, music, dance and Poetry all in one weekend and one venue. Programme Highlights including the London Premiere of NYC pop video feature GIRL WALK // ALL DAY (dir: Jacob Krupnik) and a special screening of Tottenham-set high school teen comedy IT’S A LOT (dir: Femi Oyeniran, Darwood Grace).
