One Stop Film Shop is a special pop-up space hosted by the East End Film Festival and Little White Lies Magazine, one of the UK’s most respected film magazines. Located at Old Street Station in East London, the One Stop Film Shop will act as a hub for festival guests, cinephiles and Londoners to alight for free, bite-sized film taks, screenings and masterclasses with festival guests, the festival team, and LWL magazine.
These events will offer a combination of the democratising effects of technology on filmmaking, and how the use of mobile phone and social media are having an increasing impact on cinema, as well as more cinema-orientated events and talks. All of this is designed to appeal to both a specialist and non-specialist audience, offering both practical and artistic insight into the world of film.
