This year’s East End Film Festival goodie bags are sponsored by green companies and LE PURE did not miss the opportunity to be part of London’s biggest alternative film festival. This festival is a completely not-for-profit CIC (Community Interest Company) and is committed to the work of first and second time directors.
The East End Film Festival was founded in 2000 and is one of the UK’s largest film festivals. It has a very diverse and rich programme and furthermore enables independent filmmakers to show their pioneer work. The EEFF’s mission is to offer a platform for filmmakers living and working in East London, where they can show their first projects. In the heart of London’s most dynamic quarter visitors get introduced to a totally innovative cinematic experience. The East End Film Festival attracts more than 30,000 visitors each year and has established itself as a major international film festival.
Previous guests of the EEFF include Hugh Grant, Clive Owen, Ken Russell, Danny Boyle, Ron Perlman, Richard E. Grant, Julian Temple, Shekar Kapor, Ben Wheatley and Mike Figgis; as well as composers Michael Nyman (The Piano, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover) and Nitin Sawhney; producers Stephen Woolley (The Crying Game) and Andrew Macdonald (Trainspotting); and writers Tony Grisoni (Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas) and Ayub Khan Din (East is East).
