Films For Food: Wizard Of Oz
Follow us over the rainbow with our Films For Food family screening of the beloved masterpiece The Wizard Of Oz and revisit Dorothy’s adventures in the magical land of Oz.
In a reversal of 2017, when EEFF opened with a free outdoor screening in partnership with Films For Food supporting Tower Hamlets Food Bank (free admission with donation of non-perishable food – a massive 370kg haul was donated), this year EEFF closes with a weekend of outdoor events at Old Spitalfields Market, including more Films For Food activity. Exercising its social responsibility underpins all that EEFF does. Hence this year, donations of non-perishable food for Films For Food can be made throughout the festival – because EEFF intends to smash last year’s record.
So come along to our family screening of The Wizard Of Oz. The price of a ticket? A donation of non-perishable food to Tower Hamlets Food Bank.
Date - 28th April, 2pm at Old Spitalfields Market16 Horner Square, London E1 6EW.

Films Including: Tunde’s Film
UK | Tunde Ikoli & Maggie Pinhorn | 1973
Filmed in 1970s East London, this rare, gritty drama deals with the trials faced by a group of young black teenagers. The film follows director Tunde Ikoli and his pals Colin, Micky and Taploe as they struggle to find work on the streets of pre-developed Tower Hamlets. Penniless and constantly harassed by the police, the boys decide to cut their losses and rob a bank. A potent, incisive slice of social realism, with music by Joan Armatrading. – BFI
