Join us at Vibe Live on Brick Lane for an afternoon and evening of Louisiana liquored music and movies.With free Bloody Marys and the hearty Southern grub known as grits, the East End Film Festival offers a relaxed day of Southern-fried cinema and song, with award winning films taking in everything from the wild plains of Texas to inner city Georgia, and from the endurance of the juke joint and bluegrass music to the art of making gumbo on film.
