Charlie Brooker’s dark and dystopian TV series 'Black Mirror' is set to premiere new episodes at this year’s London Film Festival. Three instalments of the much-anticipated new season will be screened at Curzon Cinema Chelsea next month, alongside an event with co-creators Brooker and Annabel Jones, and director Joe Wright. 

The first event, 'LFF Connects Television: Black Mirror', will see Brooker, Jones and Wright discuss their work and the 'impacts of advancing digital technologies on the way we live.' Wright's episode, 'Nosedive', which follows an emotionally fragile woman who becomes obsessed with achieving a high personality score on a social networking app, will also be screened.

The same evening, 'Black Mirror Preview' ticket-holders will get to watch new episodes 'San Junipero' and 'Shut Up and Dance'.

'Black Mirror' moved from Channel 4 to Netflix after two successful seasons. It's managed to bag a whole host of impressive Hollywood faces – from Bryce Dallas Howard and Alice Eve to Jerome Flynn and Gugu Mbatha-Raw – for its third six-episode run, which will be available on the streaming service from October 21. 

'LFF Connects Television: Black Mirror' and 'Black Mirror Preview' take place on October 6
