127 Hours to close LFF
“Having closed the festival with Slumdog Millionaire in 2008, it is unprecedented for us to choose a Closing Night film from the same director only two years later," said LFF Festival’s Artistic Director Sandra Hebron. "But 127 Hours was the obvious choice for us — with filmmaking as bold and adventurous as its subject matter, it confirms Danny Boyle as one of the world's finest and most visionary directors, and will be a very fitting close to the festival.”
"I am honoured and delighted that 127 Hours has been selected to close the BFI London Film Festival," said Boyle. LFF played a vital role in the journey of Slumdog Millionaire in 2008 and it's great to be bringing new work here and renewing a happy partnership. I can't wait to unveil the new film and I hope it provides a worthy climax to what will hopefully be two weeks of great movies for our city."
The full list of this year's films will be announced on September 8.
