Preview: United Film Festival @ Roxy

The United Film Festival, now 10 years old, is an international roving festival of independent films, documentaries and classics.

The London chapter runs between 3-6 June at the Roxy in Borough, and displays a variety of indy films with shorts before each screening.

Leila is not your usual love story. A seemingly happy family unravels when the husband turns insane.

On the documentary front, watch Bed Stuy: Do or Die, which takes you to the gritty streets of Brooklyn and the work of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps, who help alcoholics and drug abusers.

Act naturally is a quirky story about two sisters, who meet after a long time to claim their inheritance — a nudist resort — after their dad dies.

Those longing for some old classics can catch An American Werewolf  in London or The Shining on Tuesday.

Tickets cost £6 each or £10 for double-bills. For the detailed programme, please visit the festival's website.
