Tim Burton To Win BFI Fellowship
And the god of mischief joins LFF jury

The BFI London Film Festival kicks off tonight with a big ole' monster mash in Leicester Square. Tim Burton will be unleashing his terrifying mummy-hamster Colossus as Frankenweenie gets its opening night gala.

The filmmaker and his frequent collaborator (and missus) Helena Bonham Carter won't just be strolling the red carpet, though, The pair have been honoured with a BFI Fellowship to be awarded at the LFF awards on October 20.

This year marks the LFF's inaugural awards and the festival bigwigs have been busy conjuring up a jury to pan for pure movie gold amidst a pretty solid looking line-up. Like cinema's equivalent of Theo Paphitis and Peter Jones, this year's movie dragons will be Tom Hiddleston, David Hare, David Yates, Olivia Colman, Sebastian Faulks, Argentinian director Pablo Trapero and Hong Kong filmmaker Nansun Shi.

Chins will be stroked, eyebrows raised and at least one filmmaker will tearfully admit that its plot projections were over-ambitious. Here are the In-Competition entries in full:

After Lucia, Michel Franco
End Of Watch, David Ayer, USA
EVERYDAY, Michael Winterbottom
Fill The Void, Rama Burshtein
Ginger And Rosa, Sally Potter
In The House, François Ozon
It Was The Son, Daniele Cipri
Lore, Cate Shortland
Midnight’s Children, Deepa Mehta
No, Pablo Larrain
Rust & Bone, Jacques Audiard
Seven Psychopaths, Martin McDonagh

The BFI London Film Festival runs from October 10-21.
