Leytonstone Loves Film

Blonde person in stripy polo neck dances down Leytonstone backstreet.

Join us for a spectacular free weekend of films and movie magic in unexpected places around Leytonstone Town Centre.

Stories from all over the world screen venues on your doorstep, with the work of local filmmakers right next to classics and new favourites alike. Check out the Barbican-curated film programme, covering everything from anime hit Paprika, modern cult classic BlacKkKlansman, a live score of Buster Keaton’s The General, vintage Varda and more.

Plus, get to know your local history with a documentary on the origins of Grime in the borough, an exhibition about the local picture palaces of the past and free walking tours across the weekend. There will be family film fun in with arts, crafts, activities and workshops to inspire the littlest ones.


Leytonstone Loves Film is produced by the Barbican in partnership with local residents and organisations and Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019.
