From 14 to 23 of October, the Times BFI 53rd London Film Festival introduced a range of new British, European and world films to the UK capital. The festival hosted the British premieres of major films such as Jane Campion’s Bright Star, Wes Anderson’s animated version of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox and John Hillcoat’s adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic novel The Road.
