Rep regulars, arthouse addicts and genre junkies are well-served alike at this free-range festival, which follows London in the calendar, but not in class.
The Official Selection strand is your "quality" cinema checkpoint, where choice picks include Ben Affleck's Argo and Jacques Audiard's Rust and Bone.
Veer off the respectable track and you'll find disreputable delights in the Fanomenon strand, home to genre pleasures such as found-footage horror anthology V/H/S and Kill List wild card Ben Wheatley's darkly funny Sightseers; elsewhere, under the Cinema Versa banner, leftfield documentary and music action await, including a Leaf Label night at which Matthew Bourne will improvise a live score to Un Chien Andalou.
Andrei Konchalovsky and Stanley Kubrick get the retrospective love, before Michael Haneke's devastating Amour closes a festival with, surely, something for everyone.
