LIFF 2011: Day 3 Video Highlights From BFI 55Th London Film Film Festival


On Day 3 of the 55th BFI London Film Festival, Steve McQueen’s Shame, starring Michael Fassbender, had its UK premiere. Prolific documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield also presented the UK premiere of his latest endeavour, Sarah Palin: You Betcha. Seth Rogen and Will Reiser took part in a live streamed Q&A at BFI Southbank, presented in conjunction with YouTube, and finally the Filmmakers Tea series launched at the May Fair Hotel.

Brandon is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control. From director Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.
