The Lab Film Festival

The Lab Film Festival is a film event and organisation which specialises in celebrating and developing the working practice of emergent film-makers.

We operate as a step-up organisation for emerging contemporary film makers and artists.

We are working alongside a series of partnerships with galleries, youth groups, councils, cultural institutions, curators, cinemas and festivals around the Hackney Wick area and East End to develop film practice.

This also includes developing film clubs and workshops with young people in three boroughs, Tower hamlets, Hackney and Newham to run year round.

We will be showcasing works over a week of events from 21st-30th June, with many buildings opening with film show reels, alongside workshops, symposium, talks, gala events and performances.

We are formed as a CIC (Community Interest Company), and so have a series of aims which we are working towards.
