I am super excited to announce that I am going to be attending parts of the 2016 London Film Festival. It is taking place from 5-16th October 2016. I will be in London from the 5th to the 8th October. Although the 5th will be taken up by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part I and II.
That night will also see the start of the festival with the Premiere of A United Kingdom staring Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo, so hopefully I will get tickets to see that one on a different day (depending how scheduling works). It sounds like it is going to be a good emotional film to watch.
I think you should therefore be prepared for plenty of blog posts before, during and after the event. Shame I couldn’t have stayed for more days but it is really expensive to stay in London. With exclusive film reviews and hopefully photos from some film Premiere’s as well (my attempted premiere attending has not been the best at all).
I have become a member of BFI and mainly to get priority booking for tickets when they go on sale in September. I was lucky enough to catch one film last year and I hoping I will be able to fit plenty in each of the days and really maximise my time in watching the films. I have certainly made sure my hotel has good WiFi and apparently the cafe area has Superfast WiFi lets hope so with the blogging I will be doing!
I might even have a look back at films that have previously won the Best Film of the Festival award and had Premiere’s at the event.
If anyone who regularly attends Film Festivals has any advice that would be very much appreciated!
