The 11th East End Film Festival (EEFF) will be honoring WorldPride London by screening a wide variety of LGBT films from all over the world. The festival will take place from July 1-8, right before the Olympic Games come to London’s East End. The festival’s secondary event, CINE-EAST, will take place on July 1 from noon to midnight, providing an array of free events from screenings and live music to workshops and film competitions. Furthermore, the pop-up screenings will be displayed in over 100 different venues from gay boozers to fetish and erotica stores. Among the diverse selection of films, is an EEFF and Amnesty International UK collaboration film called “Call me Kuchu”. The movie depicts the murder of LGBT Ugandan activist David Kato and conveys the struggles of the LGBT community in that region. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival, “Look At Me Again” (Olhe Pra Mim De Nova) follows the life of a Brazilian man who used to be a lesbian woman. Winner of the Media New Talent Award at Cannes Film Festival, “Riot girls” (ANarchija Zirmunuose) is a Lithuanian film about a young girl in the big city.
