France might have Cannes, and the US might have Sundance, but the London Film Festival has become a bonafide institution in its own right, bringing together industry insiders and film fanatics from all over the UK, to showcase the best of underground and mainstream world cinema. The event is run by the British Film Institute and alongside screenings of over 300 feature film, documentaries and shorts, the festival holds a full programme of talks, lectures, master classes, interviews with actors and directors, educational events and public forums. Amateur film buffs can discover a treasure trove of new talent to admire and even those who just have a casual interest in film will find something to suit their tastes.

The London Film Festival is just as glamorous as its European and American contemporaries, with Opening and Closing galas, which see major celebrities and up and coming stars sharing the red carpet; and elaborate premieres are screened at London's large Leicester Square cinemas. However, unlike other large film festivals, London Film Festival is a fan friendly event where you don't need to wave a press pass to get in to screenings. Most screenings are reasonably priced and held in cinemas throughout the city to introduce new and challenging films to the widest audience possible.

This rejection of elitism has been the aim of the festival since it started in 1953, when it was conceived by a group of film critics, who believed it should be a 'festival of festivals'; however the event is still a great place to network with film insiders and journalists from around the world. The festival also has an awards ceremony, with awards such as the Best Film, Best British Newcomer Award and BFI Fellowships. The Sutherland Trophy is also awarded for the festival's most innovative first feature and The Grierson Award is awarded for the best documentary feature.

Renowned directors such as Werner Herzog, Danny Boyle, Jean Luc Godard, Bernando Bertolucci and Michelangelo Antonioni have all been recognised at the festival, alongside well-respected thespians such as Ralph Fiennes and John Hurt. With so many luminaries milling around during the festival it's a good opportunity to do some celebrity spotting. If you are arriving in London in October, the festival is highly recommended, and keep your eyes peeled for events taking place in locations such as Croydon and Brixton, which are further away from the centre of the city. The main events take place at the BFI Southbank Centre, which is surrounded by many more excellent centres of London's cultural scene, such as the Southbank Centre, The National Theatre, The Hayward Gallery and the London Eye is also close by, making this a great location for your London accommodation. There are several hotels in the area, catering for varying budgets. Novotel London City South is a reasonably priced hotel with a reliable quality of service and rooms. The 4-star Mercure London City offers contemporary rooms and a fitness centre. The Marriott County Hall offers elegant, traditional-style 5-star rooms and a pool and the Southwark Rose Hotel offers stylish modern rooms for affordable rates.
