As the London Film Festival kicks off a host of top British talent turned out for a fundraising dinner in the capital.

The likes of Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes rubbed shoulders with Homeland actor Damian Lewis at an event celebrating film and raising money for the BFI's National Archive.

Actress Sienna Miller was the last to arrive after her flight was delayed - and she gushed with excitment about the festival as she rushed in.

Soundbite, English, actress Sienna Miller,saying:

''Yes anything that's film related in England, we make such fantastic films, and it's great, it's wonderful to support''

Filmmaker Tom Hooper well know for directing 'The King's Speech' gave a run down of some of the films he's looking forward to.

Soundbite, English, Tom Hooper, saying:

''Alfonso's film 'Gravity', which people who have seen it tell me is mind blowing, a step forward in movie making, and the Tom Hanks, Paul Greengrass film 'Captain Phillips' tomorrow night (October 09) which looks like it's going to be amazing.''

The 57th annual BFI London Film Festival runs for 12 days and features 234 fiction and documentary films.
