The London Film Festival


With over 200 films from more than 90 countries, the 56th BFI London Film Festival can feel like insurmountable territory to the unprepared traveller. A glutton for adventure, we plucked our unsuspecting cinephile, Steve Thompson, from the sanctity of the arts desk and sent him forth. Here he tells us his tactics for tackling everything the festival has to offer before bringing us his round up when the curtain comes down…and we couldn’t do it without a bit of snappy editing and dramatic music, now, could we…?


Steve’s festival pickings will be following shortly in The Arbuturian. For full details of the films shown at the 56th BFI London Film Festival, visit the website.
