But this year the organisers are keen to get talented local film-makers on board too. Basically, they’re looking for interesting shorts to show pre-film (5 mins or so each).So if you’re a bit of a creative, or have produced something on a Leyton/Leytonstone theme – or anything a bit, well, Hitch, really – they’d love to hear from you. It’ll be exposure to over 900 people too, which once they’ve all shared it on social media, could be the start of summat. Well, you never know.
If that’s not you, the event also needs volunteers to help out in all sorts of ways from fetching and carrying to clearing up. Although you won’t get paid, it does mean enjoying it all for nada, plus free food, drink and a t-shirt.
