BFI expands London Film Festival

The BFI says this year’s event will use more cinemas and host more screnings than in the past.

Although, running from the 10th to the 21st of October, it will be slightly shorter than in previous years, the organisers say that by expanding into more parts of London and making greater use of existing venues, the festival will be a “concentrated burst of film” for the capital.

It says Leicester Square and the Southbank will remain the main axis of the event, there will be more screenings at the ICA, the Curzon Mayfair, the Brixton Ritzy and the Cine Lumiere in Kensington, while four new cinemas will be used — the Hackney Picturehouse, the Renoir in Bloomsbury, the Screen on the Green in Islington and the Rich Mix in Shoreditch.

The BFI says this will enable more people to get involved and will boost the event’s commercial potential.

The new festival director, Clare Stewart, has previously annoucned that she is introducing new programme categories and enhancing the competitive nature of the event. She says the London Film Festival is “one of the jewel’s in the capital’s cultural crown” and she wants to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to experience it.
