Hear that rumbling? It’s the sound of limos pulling up, red carpets rolling out and popcorn machines preparing to go into overdrive. Yes, the London Film Festival is nearly upon us (October 9-20) and today’s Time Out Magazine is dedicated to the capital’s biggest film bonanza. We chat to the legendary Kate Winslet, tell you 15 reasons why London is the film capital of the world, reveal the top 10 festival films you need to see, talk to Adèle Exarchopoulos, the 19 year-old star of ‘Blue Is the Warmest Colour’, bring you a behind-the-scenes guide to the LFF and an interview with the director of ‘Captain Phillips’ Paul Greengrass.
In non-LFF related fun, we’ve also been swimming in the freezing Stoke Newington West Reservoir, meeting Nicholas Jaar, checking out an over-28s disco, reviewing the new Village Bicycle shop in Brick Lane and pondering over the top 10 movies filmed on the Tube. Plus there’s the usual wealth of listings, reviews and so much more.
