London Film Festival 2018

Our essential guide to 2018’s biggest and best UK film festival

London Film Festival 2016

The BFI London Film Festival – the biggest, brightest and best event in the capital’s film-going calendar – hits cinemas across the city from October 10-21, 2018. And this year promises one of the strongest line-ups in the festival’s 62-year history, with big galas screenings like Steve McQueen’s ‘Widows’ and Yorgos Lanthimos’s hugely buzzy ‘The Favourite’ sharing screens with smaller but no less worthy fare. There are also Q&As and masterclasses with filmmakers to get stuck into, as well as short films, talks and workshops. Here’s your full guide to the London Film Festival 2018.
