Description

Are you a socially conscious individual?

Do you want to discuss the things that really matter?

Are you as free as you think you are?

The Let's All Be Free Festival is widely recognised as the most successful socially conscious film festival in London.

Over the last three years, our audience, sponsors and partners have supported and shaped the festival into what it is today.

We showcase fiction, documentary and expression, short and feature films from all around the globe, that promise informative, fascinating and riveting entertainment.

LABF Festival 2016 will showcase the best new films from all four corners of the world, hold interactive panel discussions with experts in the field and bring together a diverse and inquisitive group of people.

  • Five venues in the popular Shoreditch area
  • Opening night party with music
  • Award winning poets at our Poetry Evening
  • Screenings of fiction, documentary and expression shorts from all around the globe
  • Variety of hot topic panel discussions with field experts
  • Bagel Brunch Closing Party
  • Networking opportunities

Wednesday 12th October:

Opening Night Party @ No 14 Bacon Street | 7pm-11pm

Come and help launch #LABF2016 with drinks, music and film!

We'll be showcasing the best of what is happening throughout our Festival with various performances and showcases.

Every attendee will get a complimentary mini gift bag to get you in the Festival spirit!

Thursday 13th October:

Shorts Screening @ RichMix | 3pm-5pm

A series of short fiction, documentary and expression films from our Official Selection exploring what it means to be free!

"Freedom In Film" @ Cafe 1001 | 7pm-11pm

An evening of films exploring what being free means followed by the panel discussion: "My Body, My Life? Is Sex Work a Human Right?"

Many people use their bodies as a matter of course when getting their work done. Athletes, footballers, labourers, chefs, police officers, the list goes on and on. Yet when it comes to sex work, many societies place restriction on a person’s ability to use their body to do their chosen work. Is this fair?

Friday 14th October:

"Freedom In Speech" @ The Society Club | 7pm-11pm

Join us for an evening of poetry and spoken word performances held at the charmingly intimate bookshop The Society Club in Shoreditch.

We have American-Palestinian award-winning poet Naomi Shihab highlighting the evening with a reading from her book "Tender Spot", as well as other performances from poets and spoken word artists.

Saturday 15th October

Shorts Screening @ RichMix | 1pm - 3pm

A series of short fiction, documentary and expression films from our Official Selection exploring what it means to be free!

"Wealth = Freedom?" @ RichMix | 3pm - 5pm

An afternoon of films exploring what being free means followed by the panel discussion: "Does Wealth Trap You or Free You?"

Much was written earlier this year about David Cameron being trapped by his wealth when information about his offshore accounts was leaked. Is it possible that too much wealth is a bad thing? Some would say seeking wealth is a trap. How does having or not having financial resources affect you?

Shorts Screening @ Close-Up Cinema | 7pm-9pm

A series of short fiction, documentary and expression films from our Official Selection exploring what it means to be free!

Sunday 16th October

Bagel Brunch Closing Party @ No 14 Bacon Street | 11am-2pm

Celebrate the end of #LABF2016 with drinks and bagels from the famous Brick Lane Beigel Bake!

We'll be handing out complimentary bagels until they run out.

We'll be announcing the winners of LABF Festival 2016 and awarding them their prizes. 

Let's celebrate in style with music and a proper Sunday brunch party!
