Feast Your Eyes on This

Fifty-seven years, fifty-seven participating countries, and three hundred and sixty-nine films. Even if you watched one a day, it would still take more than a year to watch. But the BFI has managed crammed them all in to eleven days. Unfortunately I missed the Gala night announcement, but there are still eight more days of fantastic films to be seen.

The BFI London Film Festival has something for every member of the family, so whether you like romance, action, or have the little ones to think about, head down to Southbank between no and the 20th October.

If you can't quite make up your mind, then go to a screening of one of ]The Best Film Award nominees. Among the films vying for position include Abuse of Weakness, an autobiographical tale by Catherine Breillat, Like Father, Like Son, which is about two Japanese boys switched at birth, who are finally reunited with their parents, and an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant. There are other official competitions as well, such as The Best Documentary and First Feature.

Celebration of the latest are combined with commemoration of the greatest. Watch revivals of international archived treasures like The Epic of Everest, La Belle et la BÍte, and Cowboy.

Do you prefer thrills or giggles, to make love or debate? Cult films will take you on a journey through space, but earthbound odysseys can be just as exciting. Youngsters can enjoy animated shorts, Foosball 3D, and the adventures of Antboy, a superhero fighting the villainous Flea.

Ticket prices vary quite widely. For the children's films you might get in for £5, but others can cost up to £17.60.
