The BFI London Film Festival is back and while it might not have the glamour of Venice and Cannes, there’s no arguing with the incredibly rich and diverse offering of our own homegrown film fest (of which, 111 features have been helmed by a female director this year). Oh. Yeah.
Running from 4th-15th October, LFF gives movie lovers a chance to catch anything from highly anticipated indie flicks to controversial documentaries and shiny future Oscar nominees. Over the course of two weeks, you can expect *deep breath* 243 features, 67 countries repped, 28 world premieres and 128 shorts, screened at venues all over London. Yes, it can be tough to know where to start. So here are 10 of the very best films not to miss.
