The second Festival of Film, staged at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2017, features a programme headlined by Steven Spielberg’s classic thriller, Jaws in Concert – marking the first live performance of John Williams’ iconic score in full in the United Kingdom. The special production also features music by Williams omitted from the original film, now restored in full.

The Festival will also host the world premiere of The Addams Family in Concert, director Barry Sonnenfeld’s 1991 comedy-fantasy starring Angelica Huston, Raúl Juliá, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci.

Lucy Noble, Artistic Director at the Royal Albert Hall, said: “After the success of last year’s inaugural Festival of Film, we’re delighted to present an even bigger, better programme for 2017. From Jaws to the work of James Horner, a 70-piece orchestra to a silent disco, and MGM musicals to silent German horror, there’s something for everyone.

“Though the Hall’s programme is the most diverse in the country, we’re synonymous with great music, and this groundbreaking festival looks to bring film music centre-stage where it truly belongs.”
