It's Only The End of the World: win tickets for the BFI London Film Festival Gala

We love a red carpet and we want you to be part of the action too! That's why we're offering you the chance to attend the London Film Festival BFI Flare Special Presentation of Xavier Dolan's It's Only the End of the World. What is more, phenomenal award-winning director Xavier Dolan (MommyTom at the FarmLaurence Anyways) is expected to attend this event and we're hugely excited. 


After 12 years of absence, a writer goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fuelled by bitterness and fear, while all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen, and love. 

A brilliant, stylised and hallucinatory evocation of family disfunction
— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ✭✭✭✭

Starring Gaspard Ulliel, Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard and Nathalie Baye, It's Only the End of the World is directed, adapted and edited by Xavier Dolan after Jean-Luc Lagarce's play Juste la fin du monde. It's Only the End of The World premiered in competition for the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Grand Prix of the Jury. It is Canada's entry for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 89th Oscar Academy Awards.
