The BFI London Film Festival

BFI London Film Festival

The BFI London Film Festival hits the capital for two jam-packed weeks of non-stop film screenings at the BFI Southbank, and various cinemas across London, starting October 9 2013. A true highlight of the film industry calendar, the 15-day festival attracts some of the biggest stars of Hollywood and showcases more than 200 films including the best of independent movies, documentary work and and animation. This year marks the festival’s 57th anniversary and there is sure to be no shortage of glitzy world premieres, post-screening Q&As and guest appearances. Newly instated director Claire Stewart takes charge for the second year running. Last year’s event included an impressive 14 world premieres that were shown over 12 consecutive days. Festival highlights include a number of one-off workshops and master classes and various festival bashes attended by a string of celebrity names. An annual happening in the UK, the event is organised every year by the British Film Institute, which has been running since 1933 and is a charity governed by the Royal Charter. The BFI Southbank makes for a magnificent venue as a four-cinema film centre with full cinema seasons listings throughout the year. Details of the 2013 programme are released on the official website and tickets range from £7 to £25 per film screening.

The closest station to Southbank is Waterloo Tube Station, which is also well connected to various parts of London and beyond by Overground. Those flying in especially for the festival can take a look at our nearby London hotel deals.
