Less glamorous than Cannes, less star-studded than Venice, and smaller than Toronto, it’s the 57th yearly film festival organised by the British Film Institute. But what it lacks in bling it makes up for in quality: this year’s line-up is widely seen as the strongest in a long while.

LFF runs 9-20 October.
