The East End Film Festival is delighted to welcome Eddie Berg, former Director of Partnerships at the BFI, to the East End Film Festival as Associate Director. Having previously served on the festival’s Best Feature Jury in 2014, Berg joins the festival team in an official capacity this year, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and experience. Berg is the former Artistic Director of BFI Southbank and founder of FACT in Liverpool, and will be aiding the festival as it further develops its role in discovering and nurturing new filmmakers in the UK and beyond.
“The EEFF is now a major UK platform for audiences to discover the best new and emerging filmmakers from around the world,” says Eddie Berg. “Its location in London’s creative heartland gives the festival a distinct character and flavour, and over the next few years we plan to make the festival even more ambitious and inspiring by creating a deeper focus in key areas and by extending its activities in new and exciting ways. It’s great to be able to help something so strong and rooted become an even more essential part of the cultural life of London.” Eddie Berg, EEFF Associate Director.
