The BBC shares some of the British films that will be showing at the Venice Film Festival and The Theory of Everything has a gala premiere!

A trio of major British films are to receive their world premieres at this year’s Toronto Film Festival (TIFF).

Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne as the celebrated physicist, has been given a gala premiere.

Oxford University-set thriller The Riot Club, a big screen adaptation of the hit play Posh, will also debut at the event.

Alan Rickman’s period drama A Little Chaos will also close the festival.

The film – Rickman’s second directorial effort – sees Kate Winslet play a landscaper invited to design one of the fountains at the Palace of Versailles.

Rickman also stars as King Louis XIV, with support from The Devil Wears Prada actor Stanley Tucci.

The movies were the first of a host of titles announced by festival organisers on Tuesday, which include 13 gala and 46 special presentations
