‘COMEDY, WE MAY SAY, IS SOCIETY PROTECTING ITSELF – WITH A SMILE.’ JB PRIESTLEY LOCO returns with more of the world’s most original comedy films. Welcome to our annual celebration of comedy cinema, featuring big names, bold ideas and raw new talent from the UK and around the world. If there’s one theme that runs through this year’s films, it’s hope. Comedy is not a means of escaping the world, but of improving how we engage with it: with empathy, curiosity and kindness. Comedy’s heroes aren’t perfect. They’re foolish, flawed and often fail. But they’re also all taking a bet that the future, for all its perils, might be better – and that in dangerous times we should not look away, but ahead. We hope you enjoy this year’s programme and look forward to seeing you at BFI Southbank. WANT MORE? IN PARTNERSHIP WITH @locofilmfest Q&A guests may change due to work commitments.
