This September, the BFI present STEPHEN KING ON SCREEN, a season of film and television dedicated to living legend Stephen King, one of the most frequently adapted and versatile writers in history, and as formidable a cinematic force as a literary one. As 2017 sees an exciting new crop of adaptations including It and The Dark Tower, as well as King’s 70th birthday on 21 September, there’s no better time to celebrate and re-evaluate his invaluable contribution to the moving image.

Taking place at BFI Southbank from Friday 1 September – Tuesday 3 October, the BFI invites cinemas and film clubs outside of the capital to join in with the season to screen classic adaptations such as Stand by Me (Rob Reiner, 1986), The Shawshank Redemption (Frank Darabont, 1994) and Carrie (Brian De Palma, 1976).
