The BFI London Film FestivalKeira Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Brad Pitt come to London this October for the star-studded BFI London Film Festival when 16 world film premieres are staged over 12 days. Knightley and Cumberbatch are in town to promote 'The Imitation Game' the historical thriller based on the life of code breaker Alan Turning which opens the famous festival when 245 films are screened at the BFI Southbank and selected cinemas across London. Bjork, Sienna Miller and Brad Pitt are all expected to put in an appearance at the 58th festival which, under Clare Stewart, director since 2012, will include gala screenings, premieres and A-list stars on the red carpet. The excellent film programme which includes many independent and foreign language films is enhanced by a number of correlating events, informal post-screening Q&As, guest appearances, workshops and masterclasses. The festival closes on 19th October with David Ayer's Second World War drama 'Fury' which stars Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf.
