LIFF 2011: Day 1 Video Highlights From BFI 55Th London Film Film Festival

As Day 2 (or first full day)  of The BFI London Film Festival comes to a close the video highlights of the opening gala have come available online thanks to the festivals hosts BFI in Day 1 videocast. The festival opened with Fernando Meirelles  European premier of 360 starring Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster. 

360 is a modern and stylish kaleidoscope of interconnected love and relationships linking characters from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and deeply moving tale of romantic life in the 21st century. Starting in Vienna, the film beautifully weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix into a single, mesmerising narrative.

From a simple decision made by one man – to remain faithful to his wife – springs a series of consequences. From uplifting, beautiful and romantic moments through to desperate, confused and conflicted interludes, each protagonist in 360 has their own vivid, entertaining, funny, tragic narrative as their stories entwine across the globe.

In this first video highlights which features footage from the red carpet of the opening night gala we here interviews from  Fernando Meirelles, producer Andrew Eaton, screenwriter Peter Morgan ,Jude Law, Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run) and Lucia Siposová, along plus words from BFI Chief Executive Amanda Nevill and Artistic Director Sandra Hebron.

Remember to check back every night for the following days highlights but most of all if your attending the festival do enjoy it!
