As we get into autumn, it’s movie festival time in London! However, things have changed up a bit at the 2020 London Film Festival (LFF) this time around. From October 7 – 18, you can enjoy a selection of the 2020 LFF programme all direct from the comfort of your own home.
How to Watch 2020 London Film Festival Movies Online Via BFI Player
Most films will require you to start watching within 30 minutes of the advertised start time. So you will need to hit play within this time frame or miss out on seeing the film – and throwing away your money. Once you click play, you have 3 or 72 hours to watch the movie – all depending on the film, so if you can’t watch immediately, click play and then pause til you’re ready to enjoy.
Given the restrictions, we definitely recommend you to schedule your viewing. You can find a full overview of the movies available here.
Now, that’s all out of the way, here’s the important part – the movies we’re most looking forward to!
