It may not be the Cannes Film Festival, or even the Sundance Festival, but the Shuffle Festival will be taking place at the St Clement's Social Club in the Mile End Road for ten days in August. Curated by Danny Boyle, the event will showcase a whole raft of films, projected on both indoor and outdoor screens.


The building was originally constructed as a workhouse and opened in 1849. It was later converted into a mental health infirmary, closed for a few years and re-opened as a 'mental observation unit' before becoming a psychiatric hospital, and was finally closed in 2007.

Shuffle opens on 8 August with a food and drink party followed by screenings of Boyle's Shallow Grave, a question and answer session and an Afterparty. The following days continue in a similar vein, sometimes with each main film being screened twice and with a few other Afterparties winding up the proceedings. Other films on offer include The Long Good Friday, Slumdog Millionaire and Withnail and I.


In addition there are a couple of themed days. 12 August is an alcohol free Bollywood Day, and 11 August is Day of the Mind, in honour of the building's earlier use. This will include a session with Ruby Wax and a showing of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Tickets are all available online, either by date or by screening, with concessions available for local residents.
