What to watch at this year’s BFI London Film Festival

Film lovers, unite! This month, from 5-16 October, the 60th edition of the BFI London Film Festival rolls in to town. With so many films being screened, it’s tricky to know where to start your viewing. So we’ve put together a list of must-see films, from the popular to the lesser known. We enlisted the help of movie buff and London-based film development executive, Jessi Gray, to help us narrow down the top films to see this year. Here’s what’s topping our want-to-watch lists:

The big headliners you won’t want to miss…


La La Land

American Honey

The Birth of a Nation


The films creating a buzz (that you might not have heard about yet)…


Manchester by the Sea

A Date for Mad Mary


Lady Macbeth
