European Sports Documentary Film Festival Season Around London

This year the European Documentary Season focusses on Sport, with a programme of films from around Europe on at a number of venues around the capital, many with Q&As with the directors.  It sounds like a great event, and I'm sure many of the films are likely to sell out.

"Ready Steady Doc! brings together documentaries from all over Europe to help you see sport in a whole new light: from the Homeless World Cup to the disappearing Rimet Trophy, from a four-year-old marathon runner to an 83-year-old pole vaulter, these films have many fascinating stories to tell.
An amazing line-up of sport celebrities will attend: the manager of the Spanish National Football Team Vicente del Bosque, French football star Vikash Dhorasoo, Hungarian three-time water-polo Olympic champion György Kárpáti, European Senior Champion pole-vaulter Herbert Sepp, 83-year-old Belgian Olympic athlete Yvonne Van Bets, and more!"
