Attend the first Football Film Festival!

West Ham United supporters looking to fill the final free weekend before the 2014 FIFA World Cup should head to Sidelines: Amnesty International's first-ever Football Film Festival.

Presented in partnership with Picturehouse Cinemas and the Blizzard, Sidelines will be a weekend of thought-provoking films held at the Hackney Picturehouse.

The films will explore topics ranging from the passion and fury surrounding football in Brazil, to the ups and downs of the Egyptian national side during the Arab Spring, to the non-Jewish Ajax fans in the Netherlands who call themselves Jews - as well as lively Q&As and panel discussions, all with a football and human rights theme.

Among those attending will be former West Ham youngster and Academy coach Anwar Uddin, who became the first British Asian to play professional football in England. Uddin will take part in a Panel Discussion entitled Pride and Prejudice in the Beautiful Game at 2.25pm on Saturday 7 June.

The star turn of the weekend will be former Manchester United and France forward Eric Cantona, who will present a screening of the film Looking For Rio, which saw him travel to Brazil to discover the history of football in Rio through the narratives of its four main clubs: Flamengo, Fluminense, Vasco de Gama and Botafogo. Following the screening, which starts at 6.15pm on Saturday, Cantona and his brothers Jean-Marie and Joel will discuss the making of the film and the inspiration behind it.
