Posted by Stef in Sep 08,2010 with 13 Comments

Films starring Keira Knightley, George Clooney, Carey Mulligan, Colin Firth and Hilary Swank will be featured at this year’s London Film Festival.

The 54th BFI London Film Festival will screen 197 feature films and 112 shorts and will showcase 11 world premieres during its 16-day run.

Events will include the European premiere of Sir David Jason’s directorial film debut, All The Way Up, about a businessman whose life changes when he meets a hotel bell-boy.

The veteran Only Fools And Horses star agreed to forgo a salary to work on the film after being impressed with the script.

Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go, an adaptation of the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro starring Knightley, Mulligan and Andrew Garfield, is opening the event with an appearance by its stars on the red carpet, while Danny Boyle’s mountain climbing drama 127 Hours will close the festival, as previously announced.

Galas and special screenings include The King’s Speech, starring Firth as King George VI alongside Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter; Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, featuring Natalie Portman, and Mike Leigh’s comedy drama Another Year.

Freida Pinto appears in the Julian Schnabel film Miral while Swank plays a single mother who puts herself through law school in Conviction, both being shown at the festival.

Other films include The American, a thriller starring George Clooney, and Womb, a love story with “Doctor Who” star Matt Smith and French actress Eva Green.

The 54th BFI London Film Festival, in partnership with American Express, runs from October 13 to 28.

    To be more specific the screenings of “Womb” are on October 19th and 20th ar 21:00 and 15:30 respectively both in BFI Southbank NFT1. Those that are in London these dates have a chance to see Eva around (well, maybe on 19th…)

    I read in imdb (in the “Womb” page) some acclaiming spectator’s review from the screening in Toronto International Film Festival . That’s good and make me more eager to see it…

    lois: At Toronto it was only Fliegauf, the director. The series is Locarno, Toronto, LONDON. She can’t miss the third one. It’s next to her door, she only needs to cross the river…
