BFI London Film Festival Programme Unveiled

The BFI London Film Festival, which is to host the premiere of CAROL, has finally launched the programme for it’s 59th outing.

As I discussed in the article linked above, the BFI London Film Festival will run from 7-18. It will feature 238 fiction and documentary features, including 16 world premieres, 8 international premieres, 40 European premieres and 11 archive films.

Proceedings will open with a showing of Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette, and when things finally reach a close on October 18, it will finish things with the European premiere of Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs.

There’s a huge array of films on offer between those two, of course. These include the aforementioned CAROL by Todd Hayne, Jay Roach’s Trumbo, John Crowley’s Brooklyn, Scott Cooper’s Black Mass, Davis Guggenheim’s documentary He Named Me Malala, Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson’s The Forbidden Room, Robert Eggers’ The Witch, Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts Of No Nation, Craig Zahler’s Bone Tomahawk and James Vanderbilt’s Truth.

The festival will  take place in various locations across London, including Vue West End, BFI Southbank, Odeon Leicester Square, BFI IMAX, Picturehouse Central, Curzon Soho, Cineworld Haymarket, Ciné Lumière, Curzon Mayfair, the ICA, Ritzy Brixton, Curzon Chelsea, Vue Islington, Hackney Picturehouse and Rich Mix. There will also be extra screenings and events at the Tate Modern.
