Hitchcock’s Home returns for its fourth year

The immersive film screenings in St John's church Leytonstone are back this summer

Calling all film-makers: Hitchcock’s Home is back at St John’s Churchyard this July – and once again you can be part of it. As well as getting to know the E11 ledge better with talks, art displays and screenings, the event is also about celebrating local talent. This year’s theme is “leading ladies”.

Have you produced anything along those lines or something ‘Hitch-esque’? Get in touch with the organisers, as they’re looking to show five-minute-long pre-film shorts each evening. That means exposure to over 900 people for those selected – not bad eh?

The Vertigo tower tours are set to make a comeback, plus there’ll be food and drink courtesy of east London traders: grab a bite and a bevvy then bag a spot in the atmospheric cemetery. The feature will begin at sundown – this time classics Rebecca and Notorious are being shown, one each night.

And while you’re at it, why not dedicate a bit more time to the director? Pop into The Birds for a pint and stop and study (don’t rush past) the 17 captivating mosaics that decorate the walls of Leytonstone’s tube, created to mark the centenary of the great man’s birth.


Hitchcock’s Home runs Thursday 12th & Friday 13th July, the cemetery and grounds of St John’s, Leytonstone, E11. Interested? Email: hello@hitchcockshome.co.uk or follow @Hitchcockshome on Twitter for more info.
