The 2012 East End Film Festival is a truly international event with a great selection of films and lots of interesting ways to see them, including free outdoor screenings. There are masterclasses, workshops and opportunities to meet the filmmakers alongside the visual entertainment. This year's event is taking advantage of its overlap with the Olympics and World Pride to further diversify what it has to offer.
