EEFF is thrilled that independent cinema champions Curzon will be unveiling a brand new cinema in the East End in early 2017. Opening its doors on 20 January, Curzon Aldgate will feature four screens, a beautiful cafe-bar, and another boost to the thriving cinematic landscape of East London. Find out more about the cinema here.
To celebrate, EEFF will be presenting a special advance preview of Barry Jenkins’ phenomenal second feature Moonlight on 26 January, ahead of its nationwide release by Altitude Films on 17 February.
A revolutionary portrait of a young man’s journey through life growing up in a poor district of Miami, it has won prizes and plaudits the world over for its portrayal of black youth, and its explorations of masculinity and sexuality. Truly unmissable, we are delighted to present this screening as our first of 2017, continuing the EEFF’s commitment to the work of first and second time directors.
Join us at 8.45pm on 26 January as we celebrate the opening of East London’s newest cinema, the start of a new year, and see one of the best films of 2017 before anyone else. Tickets for this screening will be on sale from 3 January. View the trailer for Moonlight on the Curzon website here.
