Get your popcorn ready! And make it a big bucket. The Times British Film Institute 53rd annual London Film Festival promises to simply burst with entertainment. The festivities run from 14-29 October this year at a number of venues across town.

The talent this year covers the full cinema spectrum—from fun new fiction to international documentary, from playful to critical. Some of our favourite filmmakers, including Joel & Ethan Coen and Wes Anderson, will strut their stuff in London. Highlights include the gorgeous George Clooney in The Men Who Stare at Goats, Jason Reitman’s Up In the Air, and Sam Taylor-Wood’s John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy. We’re also excited for the original animated feature Fantastic Mr. Fox, with the voices of Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman.

This fanciful romp will kick off the whole shebang at the Opening Night Gala at 7pm on 14 October at the Odeon Leicester Square; the Festival will wrap up at 7pm on 29 October with Nowhere Boy also at the Odeon.

Events and screenings will take place in selected venues including BFI Southbank, Curzon Mayfair  and Greenwich Picturehouse. Prices for the screenings will vary depending on the venue so for a full list of cinemas and prices please visit http://www.bfi.org.uk/lff/ or call 020  928 3232.
