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. For its 62nd edition, the festival opens with Steve McQueen's female-fuelled heist thriller, Widows. See screenings of costume drama Colette starring Keira Knightley and Dominic West, The Favourite featuring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, and Peter Jackson's new film, They Shall Not Grow Old, made using restored and colourised from footage shot during the First World War. As well as the red carpet glamour and opening gala razzmatazz there are events for everyone at the festival, from informal post-screening Q&As to films for families and from guest appearances to workshops and masterclasses. As well as over 350 film screenings, a temporary 806-seat cinema is set up in Embankment Garden, one of two venues for the closing night gala - a special screening of Stan & Ollie starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly.
