Audience seated? Mobiles turned off? Sitting comfortably? OK, ACTION.

The East End Film Festival, now in its ninth year, will be bringing new talent as well as established filmmakers to this lively and vibrant part of London. Various venues around the East End will be hosting movie shows, masterclasses, Q&As and exhibitions, with the festival kicking off on 22 April and running for nine days.

More than 200 movies are being screened, among them the UK premiere of 'The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia', a production which intriguingly bills itself as "a different kind of documentary."

Besides movies from every corner of the globe, local talent will also be in the spotlight. This includes the world premiere of 'The Rime of the Modern Mariner', an atmospheric look at the life of the London Docks, directed by journalist Mark Donne and narrated by Carl Barat of the Libertines.

Some old classics are also being dusted down and hoisted onto the projector, including Hitchcock's The Lodger (1927). Screened outside and for free at Spitalfields Market, the movie will be accompanied by a soundtrack performed live by the acclaimed Minima.

Masterclasses include those by musician/composer/producer Nitin Sawhney; director John Harper; musician Barry Adamson; and composer Michael Nyman.

The East End Film Festival gathers together movie makers from across the world and promises to satisfy even the most discerning of cinephiles.

Now, where's the popcorn?
