Free Outdoor Film Screening in Trafalgar Square for London Film Festival

Film still from 1905 showing transport on Tower Bridge

We’re currently halfway through the 53rd Times BFI London Film Festival (LFF), which showcases films from around the world in cinemas across the city.

You may not have managed to walk the red carpet with George Clooney and co at LFF’s glitzy opening night premiere of Fantastic Mr Fox, but there’s still plenty of time to get involved with the festival.

Tonight there is a free screening in Trafalgar Square of “London Moves Me” – a showreel of archive film shorts that tracks the evolution of transport in London. The footage shows everything from London trams in 1896 to skateboarders in 2009.

London Moves Me is projected on a giant inflatable  screen in Trafalgar Square and will be accompanied by a live pianist. The event is free and suitable for all ages.
