FILM | 56th @BFI London Film Festival : 10 – 21 October

Welcome to the celebration of films from 10 – 21 October 2012 at BFI London film festival 2012 including some of the most important latin american & iberian films of the last year.

Every October the BFI Southbank and selected cinemas across London host the BFI London Film Festival attracting Hollywood players and Indie film-makers from around the globe. In 2012, its 56th year, the festival gets a new director, Clare Stewart, previously in charge of the Sydney Film Festival, and a bit of a shake-up with a new competition element. As well as 225 films – including 14 world premieres – shown over 12 days, gala films and celebrity-studded ceremonies, there is a commendable amount of programme time given over to small independent films, foreign language cinema, documentary work, animation and BFI National Archive classics. An excellent film programme is enhanced by a number of correlating events, such as informal post-screening Q&As, guest appearances, workshops and masterclasses. This year’s highlights include Dustin Hoffman’s directing debut, Quartet, and Crossfire Hurricane, the first comprehensive film portrait of The Rolling Stones, from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Brett Morgen. Expect a red carpet appearance from the old rockers themselves at the film’s premiere on 18th October at Odeon Leicester Square. The 2012 festival opens with the European Premiere of Disney’s Frankenweenie, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Tim Burton and closes with Great Expectations, directed by Mike Newell and starring Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes.
