The Romford Film Festival, with the co-operation of G Productions secured the weekend screening of Your Move at Premiere Cinema Romford.

It will be followed by a meet and greet session with singer-turned-actor, Luke Goss and Robert Davi on January 27 and 28.

Robert Davi has been seen in major feature films, including The Goonies, Die Hard, Licence to Kill and Expendables III.

Luke Goss began as a drummer in the popular 1980s band Bros, after which he transitioned to films.

He has since appeared in Blade II, Hellboy II, Tekken, Death Race II and War Pigs.

However, as a writer and film maker, Luke has always wanted to direct.

He told the Recorder: “I’ve worked with people who have real talent and I watched those who really understand film.

“For a long time, I didn’t feel creatively represented. As a musician, I missed that creative output and wanted to get back to my first passion which is film.”

Your Move is an action-packed thriller about a successful New York businessman who, while on a video call with his wife and child who are visiting her family in Mexico, he witnesses their brutal attack and kidnapping.

Unable to rely on the country’s law enforcement, he embarks on a journey to find his family and avenge the violence that befell them.

Luke said: “I’ve got a reputation for being in action films, but I wanted to make a film that was really artistic and that wasn’t too commercial.”

Luke’s wife, Shirley Lewis, is from the East London, and together have a lot of friends and family who live in the borough.

The budding director is looking forward to showcasing the film in Romford, and being part of a festival that celebrates independent films.

Speaking about Romford, Luke said he misses this part of the city, “I love that part of London. It still feels like there is a sense of community there.

“I wanted to go somewhere that was excited about the idea of the movie, and I felt deeply flattered by the enthusiasm from the film foundation.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to share the movie with those who come to the premiere.

“I’m really excited to hear the audience’s questions, for their approval or disapproval and to generally find out how the film impacts them.”

Joseph Sultana, founder of the Romford Film Foundation, said: “I set up the foundation in order to showcase independent film making all around the world. It’s for anyone who doesn’t have any studio backing for their films, and it’s all about nurturing talent.

“I found it very difficult as a film maker to get a foot hold in the industry. As the foundation grows, I want to be able to give other film makers an easier ride.”

Joseph explained that it was a real “test of serendipity” to be screening the premiere of Your Move and hosting the meet and greet event with the stars.

“I feel really humbled that they’re coming to Romford to premiere their film,” he said.

“One of the reasons I chose Romford for the foundation, is because there’s such a huge creative bucket within the area.

“I’ve made some really good connections with great film composers, actors and directors. We’re hoping to continue to create more new networks.”

The event is supported by Premiere Cinema Romford, Mercury Mall and Time 107.5 FM with all profits going back into the not-for-profit foundation.

There will also be a photo opportunity with the stars, so that fans can share their selfies with their friends using the hashtag #YourMove.

The meet and greet will take place on January 27 and 28 at 7pm at Premiere Cinema, Romford.

Tickets are priced at £50 and are available directly from the Premiere Cinema Romford Box Office.
