A new year, a new year-round format! The East End Film Festival is excited to announce the expansion of its partnership with Rich Mix London to co-present a year-round programme of screenings and events.

The annual EEFF festival is taking a strategic break until spring 2020, but far from a fallow year, 2019 will be awash with activity focusing on the festival’s key aims: to support and provide a platform for important new voices in cinema whilst demonstrating the power of film as a vital, galvanising, enjoyable shared experience, open to all.

In keeping with previous editions, the festival will be presenting weekends dedicated to its core strands of Discovery, Headline, Platform and Submerge, in addition to its youth festival, Cutting East, and professional development programme.

The festival will continue to offer exclusive opportunities for the residents of East London, as well as free tickets for unwaged workers, those of limited income, asylum seekers and refugees.

For short filmmakers and those working on their first or second features, there will be various opportunities to screen with the festival throughout 2019, so please keep an eye on our website. Details of these will be announced soon.

Thank you for your continued support, we very much look forward to seeing you in 2019, and a very Happy New Year!
