Directed by Ruben Östlund, Sweden
Screening at NFT1 26/29th October

The Times BFI Film Festival, London’s own showcase of the best new films from around the world, will soon be commencing for it’s 52nd run in two weeks’ time. Just in time for the BFI’s 75th anniversary, it will include a record number of both European and international premieres with a total of 189 features and 108 shorts featuring alongside an extensive line-up of special events and guests. Playing host to some of the most well-known directors, writers and actors in the world of cinema today, it salutes the achievements of a dynamic list of filmmakers from over forty countries. Amongst those screening will be Che, Steven Soderbergh’s controversial study of Che Guevara’s campaigns in Cuba and Bolivia, as well as W., Oliver Stone’s equally controversial story of the outgoing US president’s rise to power. Along with others truly worthy of note but too numerous to mention here, refer to the full festival programme for details of the films, events and locations planned before proceeding to book for what promises to be a rather memorable viewing experience.
