The 54th BFI London Film Festival

10月13日〜28日に開催中の、第54回目ロンドン国際映画祭54th BFI London Film Festival / LFF)が中間地点を迎えた。今年は、プレミア上映も含めて、世界各国から選りすぐった197本の映画と112本の短編映画を、16カ所の映画館を会場として一般上映している。今までロンドンにいる時は必ず行っていたんだけれど、今年は何だか乗り気になれなくて一つも観に行っていない。来週からの旅行に心が飛んでいるという事もあるけれど、その102ページにも及ぶ分厚いパンフレットを読む気がしなかった。いつもは、赤ペン片手にあらすじを読んで、面白そうな映画をピックアップして、カレンダーを睨みながら日にちを調整して(上映日は1日〜2日)、チケットを予約していたんだけれど。→去年の映画祭のエントリー参照。


The 54th BFI London Film Festival / LFF, running from October 13 to 28, is now in the halfway point. This year, the LFF gathers 197 feature films and 112 shorts, and has been screened them in 16 cinemas in London. We always went to the festival whenever we were in London, but we don’t feel like going this year for some reason. We also didn’t have much time to read its 102-page thick brochure, as our minds have been preoccupied with our trip from next week. Otherwise, we always checked the booklet with a red pen on a hand, reading the summary of the movies we thought were interested, and purchased the tickets, struggling to make the movies fitted in our calender (each movie is screened up to four days only). → last year’s post

LFF is a great opportunity for us to enjoy rare movies from unusual countries and art house movies that usual cinemas never invite, but it is utterly overwhelming with the large number, and can’t choose unless you focus on the genre or specific countries or regions – it is a big job…
