The 61st BFI London Film Festival is in full swing showcasing a whopping 243 films scheduled to appear during its two-week duration (4-15 October 2017).

With a wide range of films, both international and domestic, showing at 15 cinemas across the capital, even the most discerning film buff will find something to catch their eye.

However, we like to make things even easier for you and have come up with two recommendations. Don’t worry if you miss the viewings though, no doubt you can catch them on Netflix in the very near future.

I Am Not A Witch

Sent to join a camp in the rural areas of Zambia, I Am Not A Witch follows the story of eight-year-old Shula who is given the choice of joining a travelling witch camp or become a goat! (subtitles).

Screening: Thursday 12 October at Curzon Mayfair, Saturday 14 October at Curzon Soho and Sunday 15 October at Curzon Soho.



This movie follows the story of two men, one black and one white, who form a friendship based on shared war experiences during the segregated post-World War II in Mississippi. Look out for an appearance by Mary J Blige.

Catch this on Netflix (from 17 November) as it’s already been screened.
