BFI London Film FestivalLondon rolls out the red carpet for the BFI London Film Festival in October, with a wealth of A-list stars stepping out for premieres of their films. With over 200 feature films screened over 12 days, topped and tailed by glitzy gala nights, the festival is a true celebration of the big screen. As well as the opening gala razzmatazz there are screenings in Leicester Square, Vue West End and in the purpose-built Embankment Garden Cinema while last year the BFI Southbank hosted a new free events programme. Events are open to everyone, from informal post-screening Q&As to films for families and guest appearances to workshops and masterclasses.

About BFI Southbank

Originally the National Film Theatre, the BFI Southbank is the perfect film buff's cinema, with three large screens and a smaller studio space showing up to 2000 films a year ranging from classics to independent movies as well as gala openings. It's also the heart of London's many film festivals, and the place to go to see obscure arts films, classics, and seasons of works by great directors. More about BFI Southbank
