The London Comedy Film Festival: the brighter side of British cinema

Festival co-organiser Jonathan Wakeham and filmmaker Sarah Warren, whose film My Little Eye has been nominated for the festival's Discovery Award, joined The Evening Show to discuss what they're looking forward to.

Sarah told London Live about her film, which she stars in. It is a homage to Portal video games while managing to also be a spy caper. Jonathan says the festival hopes to celebrate the best in distinctly British films, and to pay tribute to the heritage of British cinema, all the way from Charlie Chaplin to Simon Pegg.

The festival is working to show off the lighter side of British cinema, which is often known for its serious output.
