With just three weeks to go until this year’s edition of the BFI London Film Festival, the event has made a number of new additions to its schedule.
Among the extra screenings will be Jacques Audiard’s Venice Silver Lion winner The Sisters Brothers, starring local boy Riz Ahmed, plus Boots Riley’s satire Sorry to Bother You and Dragged Across Concrete from S. Craig Zahler.
Riley, meanwhile, will be giving a talk in the LFF Connects program, possibly discussing his recent accusation that international distributors refuse to pick up titles, such as Sorry to Bother You, that are deemed “black movies.” Composer Clint Mansell will also take part in the LFF Connects conversations, while Maggie Gyllenhaal has been added to the Screen Talks roster alongside previously announced names Keira Knightley, Alfonso Cuaron and Lee Chang-don.
The London Film Festival opens Oct. 10 with Steve McQueen’s Widows and closes on Oct. 21 with the world premiere of Stan & Ollie.
