Olympic Film Festival

Seventeen days of Olympic games, seventeen days of Olympic movies.

One Movie | Each Day - Olympic Film Festival

While the world’s best athletes are gathered in London, competing in the greatest festival of sport and and culture, I will be doing my part by watching and reviewing seventeen films about the Olympics or Olympians. Like the athletes themselves some of these films will be worthy of the gold, while others should be happy just to be here.
