Walthamstow International Film Festival is a platform for short filmmakers. The second Walthamstow International Film Festival will take place from 3rd September – 11th September 2012 over 5 venues in Walthamstow, North-East London.
Walthamstow International Film Festival (WIFF), was created by a Walthamstow based couple who hoped to establish a film community in their borough, which also happens to be my borough. Think of the main British film studios and you will think of Pinewood and Elstree. However in the 1920s Walthamstow Studios was one of the largest film studios in the UK, giving Hollywood hefty competition. Before WW2, Walthamstow’s four major film studios produced over 400 films, including ‘The Battle of The Somme’ (1916), which sold 20 million tickets in the first six weeks. A world record that took over 60 years to be broken, by Star Wars.
WIFF will showcase short films made by independent filmmakers from all over the world, to a culturally diverse audience of East Londoners. (e17films.blogspot.co.uk)
