The East End Film Festival (EEFF) returns to the Troxy next month for its longest ever run.
Between 25 June and 10 July EEFF will present films and events from cutting-edge voices in cinema, questioning the status quo with a mixture of art, music and political discourse relevant to the energy of London’s East End.
The festival opens with the premiere of Mark Donne’s documentary The UK Gold, which follows the journey of a vicar from a small parish who tries to understand how London remains the financial capital of the world.
The film’s telling score was produced by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja and organisers have promised ‘a very special musical performance’ on the night.
“We’re delighted that East End Film Festival has come back to Troxy following the epic opening night in 2011 which saw the world premiere of The Libertines documentary There Are No Innocent Bystanders,” Will Poole, the venue’s events and compliance manager, said. “Mixing the screening with the secret post-film performance will demonstrate the [venue’s] flexibility as an event space.”
