Time Out says
This October sees the 61st BFI London Film Festival, undoubtedly the capital's – the UK's – biggest celebration of international cinema from the past year. On the programme is an astute mix of the best movies from Cannes and the other major festivals, and prestige awards contenders from the major US studios.
Opening the festival is Andy Serkis’s feature directorial debut 'Breathe' starring Clare Foy and Andrew Garfield. Also showing is a startling restoration of the silent Indian/British/German co-production, Shiraz (1928) as part of the UK India Year of Culture.
