BFI London Film FestivalLondon rolls out the red carpet for the BFI London Film Festival this October, with a wealth of A-list stars in attendance for premieres of their films. This year's programme kicks off with a screening of Breath, an inspirational love story starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy. Other films on the line-up include Battle of the Sexes with Emma Stone and Steve Carell, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with Woody Harrelson and Frances McDormand, and Downsizing with Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. As well as the glitzy red carpet glamour and opening gala razzmatazz there are events for everyone at the festival, from informal post-screening Q&As to films for families and from guest appearances to workshops and masterclasses.
