Synopsis

Now in its third year, the Hackney Shorts festival is coming to the Rio, showcasing the work of established and emerging filmmakers capturing the rapid changes taking place in the world.


The London Borough of Hackney is a microcosm of these changes: a diverse, vibrant community made up of many intersecting and overlapping groups. It's an unique culture finding itself under threat from the impact of social change, globalisation and conflicts of interest and identity. Film from around the world have entered films focused on local issues which simultaneously address the global issues

that affect us all.


The evening is presented in association with the Stoke Newington Literary Festival and will feature dramas, documentaries and animations all selected by industry judges for their artistry, storytelling and insight.
