The BFI London Film Festival hits the capital once again in October, highlighting the films anticipated to do well in the upcoming awards season.  The UK’s largest film festival, the 12-day event will showcase 238 films across 16 venues in central London, including the West End’s new Picturehouse Central.

Among the 245 fiction and documentary films shown at the festival, there are 16 world premieres, eight international premieres, 40 European premieres and five restoration world premieres.  There will also be 11 archive films, as well as 182 live-action and animated short films.  An outstanding line-up of filmmakers, cast and crew is expected to take part in masterclasses, Q&As, interviews and other special events, such as Interstellar director Christopher Nolan, Carol director Tood Haynes and Brooklyn actress Saoirse Ronan.

The 59th BFI London Film Festival will run between 7th and 18th October.  The event will kick off with the European premiere of Suffragette, starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep.  Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs, starring Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, will close the festival.

We will be updating this article with links to all of our coverage of the festival, including news, reviews and interviews.
