The London Film Festival has announced the full programme for its 62nd edition, which will feature 225 feature films, including 21 world premieres, nine international premieres and 29 European premieres.

This year's line-up also includes 160 short films, with 77 countries represented across the slate. Big names in the programme include Alfonso Cuaron (Roma), Luca Guadagnino (Suspiria) and Chan-Wook Park, who will bring his debut TV series The Little Drummer Girl to the festival. Other potential awards season films joining the line-up include Barry Jenkins' If Beale Street Could Talk and Keira Knightley starrer Colette.

Tricia Tuttle, Festival Artistic Director said: “We have the great pleasure and privilege at the LFF to be both a public Festival, bringing the best global cinema to the UK’s diverse and adventurous audiences, but also playing a key role in supporting producers, sales agents and distributors to launch their films. It’s our goal that LFF offers films to satisfy any cinema goer. We want to offer 12 days of pleasure – whether it’s being challenged to think about the world, or indeed the movies in a different way, or just strapping yourself in for the ride.”

Several key events will also be cinecast to cinema venues around the UK, including the world premiere of Peter Jackson’s They Shall Not Grow Old, which will be simultaneously screened, in 2D and 3D to cinemas and special venues across the UK (see Special Presentations) and for the first time ever, an LFF premiere outside London – the LFF Special Presentation of Mike Leigh’s Peterloo will take place at Home, Manchester.
