The LOCO London Comedy Film Festival, the UK’s only international comedy film festival, returns to BFI Southbank and selected cinemas in April 2016. The Festival explores all elements of comedy film-making with a series of events. Some of the highlights of the festival include:
An Introduction to Silent Comedy
The screenings for families returns with a selection of silent comedy classics with a live introduction, entertainment and music with live music from The Lucky Dog Picturehouse.
The festival explores the series of films made 1959 and 1979 by director François Truffaut and actor Jean-Pierre Léaud that followed the life of Antoine Doinel from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood. As part of the Liberté, Égalité, Hilarité celebration of French comedy, here’s a rare chance to see the complete adventures of Antoine Doinel.
LOCO has teamed up with the London Short Film Festival for a celebration of small movies: some favourite British short comedy films from the 21st century. Discover some of Britain’s hottest new talent and witness surprising appearances by some of our best-known comedy stars. Look out for Judi Dench’s dating woes, Tim Key’s yuletide, and Johnny Vegas’ scorned lover.
