A new restoration of Anthony Asquith's 1928 silent movie Shooting Stars is to premiere on 16 October at the 59th BFI London Film Festival.

The film will be presented with a new live score by John Altman, the Bafta and Emmy award-winning composer whose work includes Titanic, GoldenEye, and The Life of Brian.
