Last year the 53rd London Film Festival kicked off with the massively successful caper Fantastic Mr Fox. We’re pleased to announce that the selectors are staying savvy this year, choosing Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go to open the proceedings.
Hurrah for us Brits! According to this year’s Toronto Film Festival line-up we’ve got a lot to look forward to in terms of British cinema, with 12 Brit entrants making it into the official selection. Interestingly enough, 8 out the 12 – yep, that’s two thirds – are backed and supported by the UK Film Council (which is why you should sign the official petition to save it here).
