London Film Festival

London Film Festival

The BFI London Film Festival is one of London’s grand annual festivals, brought to the city by the British Film Institute. The LFF takes place for two weeks each October and has a worldwide standing that ensures its status as one of the essential London attractions for cinephiles.  

The LFF was formed in 1956 and normally screens around 300 films from across the world at a variety of cinemas from the BFI’s own Southbank cinema to the world-famous Empire Cinema in Leicester Square through to cool little art cinemas, like the David Lean Cinema in the London Borough of Croydon.  

Aside from film screenings, the BFI London Film Festival has a range of other highlights, including screen talks with cinematic figures, screenwriting masterclasses and other exciting exhibitions/events that change on an annual basis. Anyone who considers themselves a cinephile, cineaste or film buff needs to attend this very special festival.
