LOCO London Comedy Film Festival 2013

  • News

LOCO London kicks off this week, celebrating comedy filmmaking over four days. As well as screenings of new and classic comedies, the festival also hosts a series of events, including Working Women day featuring the likes of Julia Davis and Sky’s head of comedy Lucy Lumsden. 

The opening night features a special preview of A Liar’s Autobiography - the animated biography of the late Python member Graham Chapman, which will be introduced by Terry Jones and followed by a discussion about Monty Python’s influence on writers and performers today.

By way of bringing talent to a new audience, the faux documentary Wizard’s Way gets a screening. The film, which is yet to have a distributor, centres around two friends who get swept up in an online role-playing game.

Taking place at BFI Southbank, LOCO's Women Working day on 26 January celebrates women working in comedy, and includes interviews, previews and live guest performances. Julia Davis, Katy Brand, Isy Suttie and Sky’s Lucy Lumsden are just some of the main guests speaking.

The festival runs from 24-27 January. For further details and how to book tickets, click here
