BFI London fest programs “W.E.,” “Shame,” “Ides” – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Those who have been paying attention to the screening schedules in Telluride, Toronto and Venice will recognize several of the titles playing this year’s BFI London Film Festival, which unveiled its full slate this morning.

For example, George Clooney will bring his political thriller “The Ides of March” to the fest, while also attending on behalf of Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants.”

Madonna’s “W.E.” will screen after showing in Venice and Toronto. Steve McQueen will bring his controversial “Shame,” while David Cronenberg has been tapped to support “A Dangerous Method” with Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender (who also stars in “Shame”).

As previously announced, Fernando Meirelles’s “360” opens the fest, and Terence Davies’s “The Deep Blue Sea” closes. Both star Rachel Weisz.

In between, BFI has programmed 13 world premieres over the course of its 16-day schedule, including Marc Evans’ “Hunky Dory” (with Minnie Driver), Richard Linklater’s “Bernie” (with Jack Black) and Jonathan Demme’s documentary “I’m Carolyn Parker.”

A full list of selected films can he found HERE.

This year’s BFI fest runs Oct. 12-27.
