ECAAG is producing its own standalone fringe event that will coincide with the second Earl's Court Film Festival whose chief sponsor is Capital & Counties Properties Plc (Capco).
In the interest of balance, ECAAG’s aim is to stage an alternative event that is entirely free of corporate spin.
The core message is that Earl’s Court is, against the will of many residents, in danger of being defined within the narrow self-interests of the developer's Earls Court Masterplan.
When and where
Starts at 7pm on Wednesday, 9th November at The Bolton pub, 326 Earls Court Rd, London SW5 9BQ. Nearest tube is Earl's Court.
Earl's Court Fringe Film Night is free although donations are welcome on the night.
John Rogers, film-maker author and director will be showing extracts from his latest documentary “London Overground” partly filmed on location in Earl’s Court. The film takes place over the course of a year, rather than a single day. It follows Iain Sinclair as he meanders along the railway tracks on foot from his home in Haggerston, visiting 33 stations in 35 mile round trip.
After the screening, John will participate in a Q & A session.
"He is like Prospero crossed with Mr Chips," says Russell Brand.
We will also show debut short films from young directors with close links to Earl's Court who have filmed in the area.
ECAAG’s fringe film night demonstrates the staunch resistance and resilience within the local community to keep the spirit of rebellious creativity burning bright within Earl's Court!
