Tricia Tuttle, the director of The London Film Festival, reveals all the challenges that she faces organising the festival during a global pandemic.

Actor Patrick Kennedy describes what it was like to be on the red carpet of this year's Venice Film Festival, where the public weren't invited and the stars had to wear masks to the premieres and keep a social distance from one another.

Director Mark Jenkin knows what a festival can do for a film's reputation. After a rave review of Bait and an ecstatic response at the Berlin Film Festival in 2019, the low budget drama went on to become a huge hit around the world. He now has the unenviable task of following up an unexpected success, and is keeping an audio diary for The Film Programme as he starts to write a supernatural tale set across several time dimensions.

Neil Brand continues his series on rejected scores with The Getaway, the story of what happens when a star doesn't like the music to his new movie.
