The British Film Festival returns in November for its seventh and best year yet. The festival celebrates the finest filmmakers and acting talent British cinema has to offer, and the 2020 line-up features some of the most anticipated films of the year - from powerful true stories and literary adaptations to biographies and documentaries.

The SWITCH team has perused this year's line-up and chosen their favourite picks - so check out our reviews below for the best festival recommendations!
Written, directed, edited, and scored by Thomas Clay, 'Fanny Lye Deliver'd' is a marvel of historical accuracy. It isn't a happy film, but it is certainly an empowering one.
A beautiful, soulful and intelligent film, made with honesty, integrity and an unexpected sense of humour that breaks through the rock encasing it.
You know what you're in for when you hear the plot: it's Hallmark or Netflix bland romantic cheese. You have absolutely no reason to watch it - you'll forget about it while you're watching it.
Thoughtful when it wants to be, heartfelt when it needs to be, and funny when it can be, this film is sure to leave a smile on your face, and maybe even a tear in your eye.
It may fall into the formulaic territory at times, but that's not a bad thing - the story of what happened at the 1970 Miss World competition is a powerful one that deserves to be remembered.
