The London Film Festival is an annual event that celebrates the best in international cinema. This year’s festival was held from October 10-21 and featured a wide range of films from all over the world.

The highlight of this year’s festival was undoubtedly the screening of the new Star Wars film, The Last Jedi. The film was met with huge applause and excitement from the packed auditorium, and it was clear that this was one of the most anticipated films of the year. Other stand-out films included the new Spielberg film, The Post, and the much-anticipated sequel to Blade Runner, 2049.

The London Film Festival is one of the most prestigious events in the film calendar, and this year’s edition did not disappoint. With a stellar line-up of films from around the world, there was something for everyone at the festival.

The standout film for me was La La Land, which had its European premiere at the festival. The film is a love letter to Hollywood, and it’s clear that director Damien Chazelle has a real passion for movies. The film is a joy from start to finish, and it’s one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time.

Other highlights from the festival include Manchester by the Sea, a searing drama about grief, and Jackie, a fascinating biopic about Jackie Kennedy. I also saw several excellent short films, including one about a Syrian refugee who finds a new home in London.

Overall, the London Film Festival was a great success, and I can’t wait to see what next year’s edition has in store.

The London Film Festival is currently underway, and one of the films being screened is Nora Twomey’s My Father’s Dragon. The film tells the story of a young boy named Elias who sets out on a quest to rescue a dragon that has been captured by a group of hunters.

The film has been getting rave reviews from critics, with many praising its gorgeous animation and touching story. Twomey’s film is a delightful adaptation of the classic children’s book, and it is sure to be a hit with audiences of all ages. If you’re looking for a charming and heartwarming film to watch at the festival, be sure to check out My Father’s Dragon.


‘My Father’s Dragon’ has been a film that I’ve been looking forward to for a while now, especially since it was first announced that it was going to be made by Cartoon Saloon, the animation studio behind The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea. Therefore, I was really excited when I found out that I was going to be able to review it. After I saw the film at the BFI London Film Festival, I was really impressed with how good it was, especially since I haven’t read the book it was based on.

Recently, I had the honor of seeing the beautiful Irish film My Father’s Dragon at the London Film Festival. It is a beautiful story, rendered in gorgeous animation, based on the classic children’s books by Ruth Stiles Gannett and Ruth Chrisman Gannett. In the book, the young boy Elmer Elevator goes on a journey to find the beloved dragon of his father, and along the way meets a variety of fun and interesting characters. The film captures the spirit of the books and has a lovely score by Bruno Coulais, who has worked on many animated films.

This is a film that I would highly recommend to anyone who likes animated films for children and adults. I had the pleasure of interviewing the film’s director, Nora Twomey, on the red carpet before the screening. She told me that the film was made with a lot of love by a very small team. All the music is original, and the animation is hand drawn.
