Competition: Win VIP Tickets To The European Premiere Of 'The King’s Speech'

on Sunday, October 17, 2010
To celebrate its first year as headline sponsor of the BFI London Film Festival, we've teamed up with American Express® to give away two VIP tickets to the European premiere of the highly anticipated and Oscar tipped period biopic, 'The King’s Speech' - one of Saam's ten recommended films to watch at the LFF.

Starring Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter, 'The King’s Speech' will premiere at the star-studded American Express Gala at the Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday 21st October giving the winner of this amazing prize a night to remember as they walk down the red carpet.

As special guests of American Express, the winner and their guest will be invited to a pre-screening champagne reception at a bar overlooking Leicester Square, where you can view all the red carpet action before being one of the first to view the film. The evening will finish with the official gala after party at an exclusive West End venue where winners will have a chance to mingle with the stars.

'The King’s Speech' tells the story of the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. Plagued by a stutter and considered unfit to be King, George reluctantly assumes the throne after his brother abdicates. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, George VI is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country into war.

Headline sponsorship of this year’s BFI London Film Festival is just one element of a multi-year partnership between American Express and the British Film Institute, supporting the BFI’s year round programme of events. The relationship with the BFI will be a major addition to American Express’ award winning ‘Preferred Seating’ programme offering Cardmembers pre-sale tickets, best seats in the house and ‘meet and greet’ opportunities at many of the country’s most sought after music concerts and other entertainment events.
