The BFI London Film Festival (LFF) has lifted the lid on its customary line-up of awards-season hopefuls and domestic premieres of festival favourites for its annual gathering, set to take place from 5-16 October, an earlier time in the month than usual. Celebrating its 66th edition this year, it will host 164 features across its line-up, with 23 of them being world premieres. At the official launch earlier this week, the festival was also proud to announce that 41% of the programme will be composed of female and non-binary directors, with 34% made by ethnically diverse directors and creators. Over 60 countries are represented in the line-up.

; and Darren Aronofsky’s collaboration with a makeup-clad Brendan Fraser in the theatrical adaptation The Whale. Its highest-profile world premieres are of a family-friendly sort, although they are still very prestigious; of these, Matthew Warchus's (Pride [+lee también:

will occupy the prestigious opening-night slot, following on from the show’s much-loved West End stage run. A further highly anticipated world premiere will be another title with a possessive credit, Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio, a creepy-looking stop-motion animation take on the classic fairy tale.

Female solidarity and the fight for justice are also key issues that the festival seeks to highlight, as seen in their gala selections of the Weinstein exposé drama She Said by Maria Schrader, Women Talking by Sarah Polley and Chinonye Chukwu’s Till.

BFI CEO Ben Roberts stated that he was “immensely proud of the BFI London Film Festival and the talented team who take it from strength to strength every year”. Furthermore, he said, “They continue to find creative ways of reaching new audiences across the UK, including through our free programme and a wider range of work, such as our series, VR and immersive works. The LFF provides a vital platform for global filmmakers, and I’m excited to see such a bold and expansive range of films, more world premieres than ever and an incredible range of debuts from UK directors.”

Tricia Tuttle, the festival’s director, also said, “If there is something that unites these brilliant but disparate works, it’s the boldness and ambition of their filmmakers and creators. As we emerge from an unprecedented period of disruption and change – a global health crisis, instability, climate change – artists are our North Star, helping guide us and shape our understanding in a complex and often confusing world.”
