This year's London Film Festival will kick off with the European premiere of 360. Directed by Fernando Meirelles and written by Peter Morgan, the film stars Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Rachel Weisz and Ben Foster.
'The BFI London Film Festival is one of the best festivals in the world due to its selection of films and the number of theatres the films are shown in' said Meirelles following the announcement. 'I am very honoured 360, an intimate film that talks about our options in life, has been chosen to open the festival this year, and I want to thank Sandra Hebron (LFF Artistic Director) for extending this prestigious invitation to me for a second time, following The Constant Gardener which opened the festival in 2005.'
The 55th BFI London Film Festival will run from 12th to 27th October. For further details and ticket information, visit the BFI website.
