From the London Film Festival Website. Thanks to Jason Bechervaise for letting me know.
We are very sorry to announce the cancellation of The King and the Clown and The Ugly Swans. We have arranged additional replacement screenings of Big Bang Love, Juvenile A (19 Oct), Fresh Air (19 Oct) and The Go Master (21 Oct).
We hope to arrange a screening of The King and the Clown for a later date in the Festival.
Ticket holders who do not wish to see the replacement programmes are kindly requested to contact the Box Office for a ticket exchange or refund. We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment these changes may cause.
(Update 19 Oct: Full marks to the BFI/NFT for their firefighting techniques – I have received both an email and a phone call to tell me it’s cancelled. Great customer service. I hope that they get through to most people and that there’s not too much confusion and disappointment at the cinema today.
The BFI hope to show the film later in the Festival if the print ever arrives from Korea. Watch this space)
