October events: Watch a world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival

London, Greater London

Book tickets to a wide variety of new and award-winning films at London’s most accessible and exciting film festival.

Arguably one of the most exciting events of London’s cultural calendar, the BFI Film Festival brings the latest and greatest of world cinema releases to the capital for 12 days every October. With screenings, Q&As and interviews with directors and producers on offer, there’s always a scramble for seats when the programme is announced, and for good reason.

The BFI’s festival is more accessible than most, offering an appealing line-up of world premieres, IMAX specials, archive films and animated shorts. Plus, films are shown in cinemas right across London, from the purpose-built Embankment Gardens Cinema, to the Odeons and Vues of the West End. This year's festival takes place between 6-17 October, with tickets for most screenings available now.
