The 61st edition of the event will also screen two new films that won awards in Venice.

The 61st BFI London Film Festival on Monday unveiled further additions to its lineup, including the latest movies from John Woo and Alex Gibney.

Woo's police thriller Manhunt will screen in the festival's Thrill strand, while its debate strand has added Gibney's No Stone Unturned, a true crime documentary that reopens the case of an unresolved 1994 massacre in Northern Ireland.

The London festival has also added Venice title Nico, 1988, directed by Susanna Nicchiarelli. The biopic of iconic performer Nico won the best film honor in the Venice festival's Orizzonti sidebar.

London festival attendees will also get to see Xavier Legrand's Custody, which won the best first feature and director awards in Venice. It tells the story of a bitter parental conflict.

The London Film Festival runs Oct. 4-15.
