The capital film fest will feature new works from Richard Ayoade and the Coen brothers
Tom Hanks thriller Captain Phillips, Walt Disney biopic Saving Mr Banks (also starring Hanks) and Steve McQueen's Shame follow-up 12 Years a Slave are among the highlights of the London Film Festival's 2013 programme. The festival, which takes place in several venues across the UK capital from Wed 9–Sun 20 Oct, will also feature Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Don Jon and the European premiere of Richard Ayoade's latest, The Double.
Ayoade's film – a follow-up to his 2011 debut, Submarine – is in competition for Best Film, alongside films Clio Barnard's The Selfish Giant, Jonathan Glazer's Scotland-set sci-fi Under the Skin and David Mackenzie's Starred Up. Other strand highlights include the Best Documentary selection (featuring Alex Gibney's The Armstrong Lie and Mark Cousins' Here Be Dragons) and the First Feature competition (featuring John Krokidas' Beat poet flick Kill Your Darlings starring Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg).
The full line-up is available at the London Film Festival website. BFI members will be able to book tickets from Wed 11 & Thu 12 Sep, while public tickets can be booked from Fri 20 Sep.
