All of the French films at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival

The 2018 BFI London Film Festival will take place from October 10 through 21 in the presence of a prestigious French delegation (including Olivier Assayas, Mia Hansen-Løve, and Philippe Faucon), with no less than 16 feature films produced, or majority co-produced, by France showcased in the various festival sections, as well as 12 French short films.

An event that was initiated in the 1950s by British film critics and originally conceived as a condensed version of the major international film festivals (screening a selection of titles shown at festivals such as Cannes and Venice) the BFI London Film Festival has established itself as one of the key movie industry events in the United Kingdom, with now around 250 films from 75 countries presented each year.

This year, while there are no majority-French productions in the Official Competition, more than fifteen French-produced films feature in the various sections. They include Non-Fiction screened in the presence of Olivier Assayas, Dilili in Paris in the presence of Michel Ocelot, Girls Of The Sun in the presence of Eva Husson, Sauvage in the presence of Camille Vidal Naquet and Félix Maritaud, Maya in the presence of Mia Hansen-Løve and Roman Kolinka, Knife + Heart in the presence of Yann Gonzalez, Amin in the presence of Philippe Faucon, An Impossible Love in the presence of Catherine Corsini, School's Out in the presence of Sébastien Marnier, A Paris Education in the presence of Jean Paul Civeyrac, and All The Gods in The Sky in the presence of Quarxx. The animated film director Juan Antin will also be in attendance, along with the documentary filmmakers Matthieu Bareyre and Julien Faraut, as well as Euzhan Palcy for a special screening of Black Shack Alley.
