We are proud to be an official Venue Partner of this year's BFI London Film Festival, in partnership with American Express, which will be the first ever edition to be widely accessible across the UK.
During the festival, we will be screening the best new cinema from around the world, each complimented with a special introduction or Q&A. Alongside this, there will also be a wide range of free-to-access digital talks and events which offer in-depth conversations with some of the world’s most influential filmmakers and major on-screen talent.
It is our great pleasure to bring the films below to Sheffield...
