Hackney Film Festival
15/09/2011 - 18/09/2011various
The good thing about London is that there’s always something exciting going on. If it’s not a cinema competition on racing boats across the city canals is hidden super secret evenings with Eastern Europe’s best trapeze artists or high-quality electro squats. The bad thing is that most of these are 1 time only and hardly repeat themselves throughout the months or years.
And here comes the second edition of a great initiative:the Hackney Film Festival! Conceived as a platform for local filmmakers and audio-visual artists to have their work showcased to the community and a wider London audience.
As pretty much done in Hackney their FF wants to stay intimate & cozy not “pretending to over popularize itself with the glitz and glamour of awards ceremonies and VIP parties”, focusing on the works & talent coming from the borough.
The venues and diverse range of select events make of the HFF one of the best ways to start the course showcasing the best psychedelic local animated shorts to the most futuristic live Sonic Cinema performances. A lot going on during those 4 days and with an also large choice of prices & venues that go from the simply free, the affordable 3 or 5£ to the 10£ for the Live cinema evening.
“We aim to give the community a festival of cinema and live audio-visual entertainment for a fair price. Making the festival as financially and culturally accessible as possible is at the heart of the festival. We see the festival as a tool for education and inspiration and should be available to all”.
(Julia Pott’s new short will be shown @ RIO Cinema on Sat 17th)
