Our longlist for the London Evening Standard British Film Awards, revealed today, captures the unique sensibility of the capital, celebrating its diversity and creativity.
Films are eligible for consideration if they had a public screening in London between February 7 and October 21. This year’s advisory judging panel comprises Evening Standard film reviewers David Sexton and Charlotte O’Sullivan; Evening Standard film and TV writer Ellen E Jones; Kate Muir, chief film critic for The Times; Peter Bradshaw, Guardian film critic, and Tim Robey of the Daily Telegraph. The panel is chaired by Evening Standard editor Sarah Sands.
The shortlist will be announced in the paper next Thursday. The three final contenders for the Everyman Award for Best Film will be screened to the public in Everyman cinemas in the last two weeks before all winners are revealed at the ceremony at Claridge’s on December 8.
The winner of the Editor’s Award in partnership with Claridge’s — a special honour for a cinematic event or person to have grabbed the headlines in the past year — will also be announced on the night.
This year also sees a new audience award for Most Powerful Scene, created by Finch & Partners, where readers can vote online for their favourite film moment from 2016. The 10 scenes to choose from will be published in the Evening Standard tomorrow with details of how to vote.

The gallery was updated with over 500 HD screencaptures from the movie The Constant Gardener, a beautiful tragic drama movie in which Rachel played Tessa Quayle.
Assigned to a new post, reserved British diplomat Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes) relocates to Kenya with his lovely young wife, Tessa (Rachel Weisz), an activist for social justice. When Tessa is found murdered out in the wilderness, circumstances point to her friend, Dr. Arnold Bluhm (Hubert Koundé), but it is soon clear that he’s not the killer. Grief-stricken and angry, Justin sets out to uncover the truth behind Tessa’s murder — and in the process, he unearths some disturbing revelations.

The first major New York revival of David Hare’s Plenty has extended once again off-Broadway.

One of the most celebrated plays in the Public’s history, the groundbreaking play is the story of Susan Traherne (Weisz), a fiercely intelligent British secret agent flown into France during the Second World War. Susan’s experiences among her war-time colleagues and over the two decades that follow are distilled in powerful scenes in this endlessly layered work about a woman of remarkable bravery, who cannot find in peacetime the values and relationships she cherished in war.
