Prince William will be present at the World Premiere of "They Shall Not Grow Old", Peter Jackson’s WW1 film, at the BFI London Film Festival.

More famously known as the director of The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit, Peter Jackson’s film “They Shall Not Grow Old” will be premiered at the BFI London Film Festival on 16th October at BFI Southbank. 

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, is set to attend the premiere of this ground-breaking film which uses exclusive original footage from Imperial War Museums’ film archive and audios from BBC archive. His Royal Highness will meet Jackson along with the producers and commissioners from the film before watching the film presentation. 

The movie will present the reality of life on the front with original voices of veterans. It contains original footage that has been colorized, converted to 3D and transformed with various modern production techniques.

14-18 NOW (UK’s art program for the First World War centenary) and Imperial War Museums have co-commissioned this film. The film presentation will be introduced by BFI CEO Amanda Nevill and Jenny Waldman, director of 14-18 NOW. Jackson will partake in a Q&A session with film critic Mark Kermode after the screening. 

The film presentation and the Q&A session will be screened in 2D and 3D to cinemas and special venues across United Kingdom.
