Thirteen is lucky for summer, as the East End Film Fest celebrates its 13th year with the world premiere of Dermaphoria, in a Gala screening at the festival's birthplace, the Genesis cinema.

This stylish psychological thriller, set against the atmospheric backdrop of New Orleans, opens the festival on Friday 13 June. The film is followed by a Q & A with the director Ross Clarke and actor Ron Perlman (Hellboy) who co-stars with Joseph Morgan (the Vampire Diaries) and Walton Goggins (The Shield).

The festival showcases a selection of full-length feature films, documentaries and shorts, with a remit to discover and develop new voices in cinema.

A special screening of Howard Marks and the Lance of Destiny, a short, sharp take on fame, fortune and the fickle finger of fate, directed by Kal Bonner, is followed by a Q & A with Howard Marks, author of Mr Nice, who served time in a US jail on drugs offences and now campaigns for the legalisation of cannabis.



The closing night screening is The Blueblack Hussar, directed by Jack Bond. This paints a fascinating portrait of Adam Ant, pop icon of the Eighties, who withdrew from public life due to depression, but battled against the odds and return to the stage to stand and deliver as the Dandy Highwayman.



Cutting East, a youth-led programme of films, music, exhibitions and performance, runs from June 20-22 at the Genesis Cinema Tickets priced £6 for gala performances, £3.50 for other events.
