Royal Bank of Canada is proud to be a main sponsor of the 61st BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express, to be held from 4 October to 15 October 2017.
We are passionate about the arts– and especially passionate about film, which engages our imaginations and enriches our lives. Film allows us to explore new ideas and see things from different perspectives. And it nurtures new talent and enhances our communities.
The BFI (British Film Institute) is the leading body for film in the UK. Its mission is to ensure film is central to our cultural life and to champion cinema in all its richness. As an organisation, it promotes every aspect of the medium in the UK from festivals to education, from production to collections. It also invests lottery funds into film development and production, and into efforts to increase audiences.
As a long-time sponsor of the Toronto International Film Festival, we are honoured to extend our commitment to film and the arts by partnering with BFI. Whether you enjoy movies in your local theatre or in the comfort of your home, we believe it’s important to celebrate the art of film and the wonders and possibilities it presents.
