BFI London Film Festival 2018 (10-21 October 2018) // Words: Lauren Johnson-Ginn & Saam Das


The 62nd BFI London Film Festival kicks off today, with 'Widows' as its Opening Night Gala. As mentioned in our recent music-focussed preview of the LFF 2018, Steve McQueen's new effort is a tantalizing prospect, and an appropriate Opening Night Gala as the Oscar winner hails from London. As one of the industry's (sadly rare) successful black directors, it is also appropriate considering October is Black History Month in the UK. We've put together a list of some other appropriate films to help celebrate BHM at this year's LFF.

It's been several years since Kate Sproule first made a significant impression on our ears as a member of dream-folk outfit Mt. Wolf. The somewhat abrupt departure of Sproule in 2013 was such a loss to the group that they initially disbanded, prior to a pleasing return a year later. Sproule's next step was in a solo venture as Bo Rocha but a recent re-invention sees her return as ARIEL.

The BFI London Film Festival 2018 is upon us for yet another year - an impressive 62nd edition. We're on hand to guide you through as many of the music-related films at the 2018 LFF as we possibly can. Many of these films sadly won't make an appearance otherwise in UK cinemas, and for those that do, you'll miss out on the oft-interesting introductions and Q&As that characterise these films' appearances at a film festival.

Pop royalty Charli XCX and South African actor-turned-musician Troye Sivan (he was young Wolverine in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'!) have come together to not only deliver a bomb-ass piece of single artwork but a collaboration of considerable proportions. Check out the Britney Spears-referencing new single '1999' before the Millennium Bug hits below.

Best known for their work in Savages, Fay Milton​ and ​Ayse Hassan are now on the warpath with a new side-project, 180dB. Possibly inspired by the Aphex Twin track of the same name, or the average sound level in decibels of a rocket launch, the duo have nonetheless unveiled themselves in fearsome fashion. Featuring Meredith Graves and Nick Zinner, listen to in-your-face debut effort 'Road Trip' below.
