UK Premiere of "A Moment in Time" - The Director's Cut of The Thief and The Cobbler - at BFI on June 1st
On June 1st, the BFI (British Film Institute) in association with the Academy of Motion Arts and Sciences is screening the UK and European premiere of "The Thief and the Cobbler: A Moment in Time" - the long-awaited Director's Cut of Richard Williams' lost masterpiece.
BFI will be screening a new digital version of the reconstructed work-print at the BFI/Southbank in London. Richard Williams will be in discussion with veteran film critic David Robinson following the screening. BFI members can buy tickets now - and tickets go on sale to the general public on May 13th
With any luck we'll be able to gather some comrades in arms from the many years that The Thief was in production. Perhaps June 1st could be a kind of reunion for the talented artists who worked on this unique production.

Earlier on the same day there will also be a screening of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", also with a Q and A afterwards:
This is a once-in-a-lifetime event so be sure you get your tickets on May 13th - they will sell out fast! Tickets for the LA screening earlier this year at the Academy sold out almost immediately.
