The 2019 BFI London Film Festival (LFF) will host 29 world and 28 European premieres when it runs between 3 and 13 October, it was announced today. There will be films showing from 78 different countries, with festival director Tricia Tuttle heralding the high number of African productions that have been selected this year as well as “one of the strongest line-ups of British debut films we have seen in a long time”.

and close with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. The number of confirmed features in the LFF programme stands at 229, which will be presented alongside 116 confirmed short films. The features set to be screened include 41 documentaries, seven animations, 13 archive restorations and seven artists’ moving-image features.

The proportion of films in the LFF programme directed or co-directed by women is 40%, with that number rising to a whopping 60% for the Official Competition. Wary of naysayers, this gender-based fact led Tuttle to point out, “The LFF doesn’t programme to quota.”

There is a strong line-up of European movies across the three competition strands: Official Competition, First Feature and Documentary. Nine of the ten films in the Official Competition are European productions, including the world premiere of Thomas Clay’s UK-German co-production Fanny Lye Deliver’d [+leggi anche:
