- November marks 47th birthday party for cinema lovers
THE 47th London Film Festival will run 5 November - 20 November, organisers have confirmed. Europe' s largest public film event involves around 180 feature film premieres and 120 shorts from over 48 countries.
Films not released before in the UK or Europe will be introduced by their directors, producers and stars, while an array of opening and closing night galas add to the event's popularity. This year will also include more educational events and public forums than ever.
Every year the festival's celebration of world cinema attracts celebrities such as John Malkovich, Helena Bonham Carter, and Michael Caine. The London Film Festival's most popular cinema is the Odeon Leicester Square, which seats almost 2000. Other participating venues include the South Bank and the ICA.
