    Cate Blanchett will receive the BFI Fellowship during this year’s festival – the highest honour the organisation bestows. 

    She will receive the award on Saturday 17th October 2015, the same day as her film, Truth, receives its UK premiere at the festival.

    BFI Chairman, Greg Dyke, said ‘Cate Blanchett is a compelling and brave actress whose mesmerising screen presence has captivated audiences since her earliest roles. We are absolutely delighted to honour her extraordinary talents with a BFI Fellowship at this year’s LFF awards.’

    Previous recent honourees include Stephen Frears in 2014, the late Sir Christopher Lee in 2013, Tim Burton & Helena Bonham Carter in 2012, and Ralph Fiennes in 2011.

    Cinderella was commercial hit, Carol is gonna be big this awards season, early word on Truth is very promising, she’ll be awarded by MOMA, and now BFI. Looks like it might be best year of Blanchett’s career – and that is saying something!

    Excited by some of the films playing at the festival? Love a montage? If you answered ‘HELL TO THE YES, AMG’ to either one, both or neither of those questions, then you’ll LOVE this montage of some of the films screening, just released by the BFI! http://theb.fi/1EYdDaX

    I wonder why A24 doesn’t just release The Witch this year. It’d be perfect for Halloween.
