Grant’s ‘Wah-Wah’ to open festival

Woolley will be producer in residence

LONDON — Richard E. Grant’s directorial debut “Wah-Wah” will open London’s East End Film Festival on April 27.

Grant will also be director-in- residence at the nine-day fest, backed by the U.K. Film Council and 3 Mills Studios, which showcases established London talent and nurtures emerging filmmakers.

Producer Stephen Woolley, who recently made his directorial bow with “Stoned,” is producer in residence. He will participate in a Q&A session and a special screening of Oscar winner “The Crying Game.”

Screenwriter and regular Terry Gilliam collaborator Tony Grisoni will also take part in a Q&A.

Six U.K. preems range from “Ski Jumping Pairs — Road to Torino,” a “Jackass” inspired mockumentary about a physicist and his twin sons’ attempts to get a new extreme sport accepted as an Olympic event, to “Kekexili: Mountain Patrol,” about protecting Tibetan antelope from poachers.

Helmer Minoo Bhatia’s “Brick Lane” chronicles the history of the east London street, today best known for its Indian restaurants.
