Lexus underlines its commitment to cinema in a new partnership with one of the world’s leading film festivals.
The car brand has been announced as the main sponsor of the 74th Venice International Film Festival, taking place on the Venice Lido from 30 August to 9 September. This first-time partnership with one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals is a further illustration of Lexus’s commitment to cinema, as highlighted by the annual Lexus Short Films series and its collaboration with Luc Besson’s science fiction blockbuster, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

The Venice Film Festival or Venice International Film Festival (Italian: Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica della Biennale di Venezia, “International Exhibition of Cinematographic Art of the Venice Biennale”), founded in 1932, is the oldest film festival in the world and one of the “Big Three” film festivals alongside the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival.

The film festival is part of the Venice Biennale, which was founded by the Venetian City Council in 1895. Today, the Biennale includes a range of separate events including: the International Art Exhibition; the International Festival of Contemporary Music; the International Theatre Festival; the International Architecture Exhibition; the International Festival of Contemporary Dance; the International Kids’ Carnival; and the annual Venice Film Festival, which is arguably the best-known of all the events.

The film festival has since taken place in late August or early September on the island of the Lido, Venice, Italy. Screenings take place in the historic Palazzo del Cinema on the Lungomare Marconi and in other venues nearby. Since its inception the Venice Film Festival has grown into one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.

The heart of the brand’s presence at the festival will be the Lexus Lounge on the Biennale Terrace. Here, two flagship models, the new LC coupe and LS saloon, will be displayed. In addition, an all-hybrid fleet of 40 Lexus vehicles will be provided for VIP and guest transfers during the festival.

Annette Bening, President of the Jury, will arrive at the festival in the brand new LS 500h hybrid.“We are proud to take part in such a prestigious event, capturing the attention of the world across 11 days,” said Luigi Lucà, Director of Lexus Italy. “We share many values with movie world. Just like actors and directors, we want to improve and refine our art every day, mixing style, elegance and attention to detail to convey unique emotions and create amazing experiences.”

The 74th Venice International Film Festival is scheduled to be held from 30 August to 9 September 2017

THE BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR 61STEDITION

4-15 October 2017

cid:image012.jpg@01D30474.55C556F0

The BFI London Film Festival in Partnership with American Express® returns from 4-15 October 2017 for its 61st edition. The Festival sees hundreds of new UK and international films screened at more than fifteen locations for the UK’s leading, and most prestigious, film event.

With screenings and events open to the public as well as film industry professionals and talent, the Festival presents the first opportunity for audiences in the UK to see the very best in popular and independent cinema from across the globe. Located at the heart of the world’s most vibrant cultural city, LFF is one of the only major film festivals to be staged in a film production capital, giving it a distinctive appeal for filmmakers and audiences alike.

The Festival brings some of the biggest names in film to the city, as well as providing a showcase for the very best in emerging talent, giving audiences new experiences in film and a chance to get close to the stars and filmmakers. While some films will premiere at the LFF and go on to mainstream release in cinemas and awards success, others will receive their only big screen presentation at the festival, adding to the unique sense of discovery and a one-time only opportunity for audiences to see a film.

LFF is a social experience for all film lovers with a range of ticket options available to the public, including £5 rush tickets for the under-25s, to over 200 screenings, separated into themed strands of Love, Debate, Laugh, Dare, Thrill, Cult, Journey, Create, Family, and Treasures so that people of different ages, cultures and interests can find the films for them.

Last year’s 60th anniversary edition reached a record-breaking London attendance of 184,700, an 18% increase on the previous year. A further 9,300 people accessed Festival screenings through simultaneous UK-wide presentations and online. The Festival programme included many films that later received significant awards success such as Barry Jenkin’s Moonlight and Damien Chazelle’s La La Land. The Festival also plays an important role profiling new British talent such as director Hope Dickson Leach’s The Levellingand William Oldroyd’s Lady Macbeth. The BFI’s major project Black Star – focusing on the achievements of black actors – was launched at the LFF with significant films including Amma Asante’s Opening Night gala A United Kingdom and Mira Nair’s inspirational true story of a young Ugandan chess champion Queen of Katwe, and the Black Star Symposium headlined by actor David Oyelowo who delivered a powerful and rousing speech about diversity in film.  Films from across the globe were also featured at the Festival, with titles such as Asghar Farhadi’s The Salesman and Olivier Assayas’ Personal Shopper presented to London audiences.  At the Festival’s award ceremony, Michael Fassbender presented the BFI Fellowship to filmmaker, screenwriter and Turner prizewinning artist, Steve McQueen, and last year’s winner for Best Film was Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Women.

This year’s Festival programme will feature hundreds of new UK and international films exploring a diverse range of topical, thought-provoking and agenda-setting themes.

The 2017 Festival will open with the European Premiere of Breathe, the directorial debut of Andy Serkis on Wednesday 4 October.

Adventurous and charismatic, Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield) has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralysed by polio whilst in Africa and given just months to live. Against all advice, Robin’s wife Diana (Claire Foy) brings him home from hospital where her devotion and witty determination inspire him to lead along and fulfilled life. Together they refuse to be limited by expectations, dazzling others with their humour, courage and lust for life.

There will be a live cinecast of all the excitement from Leicester Square and simultaneous screenings taking place at cinemas across the UK.

The acclaimed talks series LFF Connects returns with leading international talent in film, television, music, art, games and creative technologies delivering insights into the creative process and discussing their art forms’ intersection with film.  Previous participants include Christopher Nolan, Louis Theroux and Black Mirror co-creators Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones.  Also returning is the career-focused Screen Talks with previous participants including Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, Paul Verhoeven, Ben Wheatley and Park Chan-wook.

The 61st BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express® takes place from Wednesday 4 October-Sunday 15 October 2017. The full festival programme will be announced on Thursday 31 August 2017 at ODEON Leicester Square.

BFI Members’ priority booking opens 10:00am 7 September.

Tickets go on general sale at 10:00am 14 September.
