The festival opens with the European Premiere of ONE CRAZY THING. Starring and produced by one of BAFTA’s 2014 Breakthrough Brits and EEFF alumnus Ray Panthaki the indie film offers us a satirical viewpoint on the superficiality of fame. Having won Best UK Short two years ago Ray Panthak says 'it feels incredibly fitting to be returning as an actor/producer with One Crazy Thing.'
The Diary of a Teenage Girl
At home in London, EEFF takes pride in screening some of the best examples of British cinema. There are 33 titles showing this year including the world premiere of PLEASURE ISLAND, set on the British coastline and NORTH VS SOUTH, which tackles rivalries between northern and southern hard men. A fine example of risk-taking in British filmmaking comes in the form of the London Premiere of NORFOLK. A tale of revenge, family and violence.

Dressed as a Girl
Another great highlight from this year's festival is their selection of LGBT film. Titles include DRESSED AS A GIRL which explores East London’s own alternative drag scene. Filmed over five years, it features key figures including Jonny Woo, Holestar and Scottee. Creating an intimate window into the lives of the people behind the flamboyant stage personas. Screening at Dalston Roof Park (7pm, Tue 7 July) it’ll be followed by what undoubtedly be an unmissable show of live cabaret performances from the stars of the film.
And of course with film comes music! And EEFF has provided a brilliant selections of films and documentaries exploring music, sound and the artists. We are particularly keen to see the world premiere of LEE SCRATCH PERRY’S VISION OF PARADISE which is followed by a Q&A with the legend of dub and reggae himself.
