London Film Festival 2013 Launch Interviews

Red Carpet News TV spoke to festival organizers and proud filmmakers at the official launch event yesterday for this year’s 57th BFI London Film festival 2013. Boasting a dazzling array of attending talent and over 235 feature films this year promises to be a very special line up indeed.

This year’s revitalized and revamped film festival also boasts an expanded range of venues, dynamic new categories and injects a fresh element of competition with an increasingly prestigious awards ceremony.
