The lineup for the 67th BFI London Film Festival has been revealed and Disney is going to be bringing a number of its shows and films to the event, which takes place at many locations across the capital and beyond from 4th October through to the 15th October.

The upcoming British Disney+ Original series, “Culprits”, will also get a special screening event on Saturday, 07 October 2023, at 16:30 at the Curzon Soho Cinema.   The first two episodes of this series will be shown.   The series is about Joe (a chameleonic Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), who lives a quiet suburban life with his partner Jules and their kids. But Joe’s identity is fake, there’s a bag of cash stashed in a nearby forest and ghosts from the past pay him a call. Culprits is a wildly entertaining, endlessly surprising thrill ride from the director of I Care A Lot and the producers of The Night Manager and The Undoing. Later episodes are directed by Claire Oakley (Make Up).

Disney will also be showcasing its upcoming animated short, “Once Upon A Studio” at the event.  This new short will arrive in cinemas in November along with the animated film, “Wish” and features Disney characters young and old come together to celebrate the studio’s centenary.  The short will be shown along with some other shorts from other studios on Sunday 15th October 2023 at 12:15 at the BFI Southbank venue.

Searchlight Pictures will be showcasing three different films at the event as headline Galas for three films, “All of Us Strangers”, “Poor Things”, and “The Bikeriders”.  All of these films will be released generally in December

“The Bikeriders” will have three early screenings on October 5th/6th/9th, with “Poor Things” also having three screenings on October 14th and 15th.  While “All of Us Strangers” is going to have some special early screenings on October 8th/9th/10th.

Kristy Matheson, BFI London Film Festival Director, said in a statement:

In preparing this 2023 festival, my colleagues and I have been endlessly buoyed by the artistry, ideas and talented individuals and communities that have come into our orbit. It’s now time to share all this wonder and we can’t wait for audiences to experience it all this October here in London and across the UK with LFF on Tour and online at BFI Player.

Ben Roberts, CEO, BFI added:

Cinema has reclaimed its status as a cultural force, an art-form that can spark a conversation around the world, and which will resound loudly through the wide-ranging line-up of essential cinema that our 67th edition of the BFI London Film Festival will offer. I am particularly excited that the Festival will be sharing the exhilarating experience of new work from global filmmakers alongside so many debut features from the UK this year. I congratulate Kristy on her first LFF programme and the talented team who continue to find creative ways to reach new audiences, including through our free programme.  We couldn’t do it without our loyal supporters, including our principal partner of 14 years American Express, so huge thanks to them and our many other sponsors, funders, partners, including the UK Government and the UK’s National Lottery players who do so much to enable both the Festival and our work throughout the year.”
