Shifting sands and seismic change are the themes at the heart of the 62nd BFI London Film Festival’s industry programme. As the UK readies itself for life after Brexit and the international film industry adapts to new technologies, evolving business models and the urgency for more inclusive representation on and off screen, this year’s London Film Festival (LFF) industry programme welcomes industry leaders and key policy makers for a programme designed to stimulate debate, share knowledge and drive forward change.
