The new BFI LOVE season is a major BFI Southbank programme which begun on 19 October and runs until 31 December 2015. It features film and TV screenings, events, Q&As, panel discussions and special previews spread across three key themes.
The Power of Love
Love can be heaven, love can be hell and in the romantic epic it’s invariably both.
Including titles – A Matter of Life and Death, Brief Encounter, Gone with the Wind, Cleopatra, Random Harvest, I Know Where I’m Going!, Doctor Zhivago + more.
Fools for Love
The course of true love never did run smoothly, and the dating game makes fools of us all, but good humour always wins the day in the romantic comedy.
Including titles – The Man in Grey, A Room with A View, Annie Hall, It Happened One Night, Pillow Talk, Brief Ecstasy, Clueless, Four Weddings and a Funeral + more.
Loving too much, or unrequited longing, can bring jealousy and heartache, and loving the wrong person will lead to trouble…
Including titles – Wings of Desire, Fatal Attraction, The Bigamist, Last Tango in Paris, True Romance, Betty Blue, Cat People + more.
For a full rundown of screenings and events you can check out the LOVE website.
