LoCo programme announced

On Tuesday evening we announced the programme for the first London Comedy Film Festival, which will be lightening up London from 26-29 January 2012. You can read the full programme here.

The Festival is a partnership between LoCo and the BFI, and we’re thrilled to be based at BFI Southbank, formerly the National Film Theatre. It’s where I first saw many of my favourite films, as well as dozens of inspiring interviews and masterclasses from some of today’s best writers and directors. And it has a similar place in the heart of many British film-makers; at the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy premiere Gary Oldman spoke very touchingly about his teenage years at the BFI, and last night a British film director told me that NFT1 was his favourite cinema in London. It’s one of the few British screens where you can guarantee that the sound and projection will be perfect, and having now met many of the team there I couldn’t feel in better hands for our very first Festival. See you there …

Thank you to everyone at 18 Feet and Rising for our new Festival identity.
