The London Film Festival is almost upon us. If you were in Trafalgar Square last night you will have seen highlights of the festival on a giant screen and there's two more nights of that before things kick off properly with The Constant Gardener. The Screen on Trafalgar Square events are free and tonight there's a special presentation of three newly restored Charlie Chaplin short films, The Keystone Silents, with live musical accompaniment by one of the UK's most respected silent film composers, Neil Brand.
Tomorrow we'll bring you a preview of some more of the hot tickets including A Cock and Bull Story (Steve Coogan at his funniest), the Old Boy follow up Sympathy for Lady Vengeance plus new films from Hal Hartley and Atom Egoyan.
Tickets and further details of all this year’s films can be found on the LFF website.
