London Film Festival coming to Glasgow

By Madeline Pritchard

13 films from the festival will be shown at GFT in October.

As film festivals around the world adapt to coronavirus, BFI are bringing London Film Festival (LFF) to the whole of the UK. Films will be available online and at their partner venues across the UK, including our own Glasgow Film Theatre. LFF is the biggest festival in the country, and this represents a unique opportunity to be the first to see upcoming films. 

The festival will run from 7 to 18 October, and 13 films will be screened in Glasgow — among them are Ammonite, a romantic period drama starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan; and Shirley, a dreamy thriller starring Elisabeth Moss as famous horror writer Shirley Jackson. Other notable films include David Byrne’s American Utopia, a documentary from Spike Lee about the Talking Heads frontman’s 2019 Broadway show; Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland, which features Frances McDormand’s first lead role since she won best actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; and Pixar’s Soul. Free tickets will be available for Mangrove, an episode from Steve McQueen’s mini-series Small Axe about the lives of West Indians in London between 1969 and 1982.Tickets for all films go on sale at 12pm on 16 September, on the GFT website.
