Hackney Film Festival, in conjunction with the East End Film Festival, curates a night of short films as part of Dalston’s Land of Kings music festival.

The programme consists of Hackney resident filmmakers, and mixes drama, documentary and music video, plus the 2011 BAFTA-winning animation The Eagleman Stag. Land of Kings wristband holders will be able to attend the screening for free, but a normal box-office will also be in operation on the night.

The coronavirus outbreak meant that the Hackney Citizen was unable to print a monthly newspaper for three months.

We're grateful that we have since been able to resume printing. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our readers, whose donations kept the paper from disappearing completely at a distressing time for residents.

A huge thank you to everyone who gave their time and money to support us through the lockdown, and to those who continue to do so as we slowly recover from the dramatic fall in advertising revenues, on top of the existing challenges threatening the future of local journalism.

A one-off donation or a regular contribution from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the newspaper in print and the website running in the coming months and years.

Find out how you can donate.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe.
