London Screenings, the U.K.’s only market dedicated to British film, opens Monday with 13 market premieresincluding Jason Connery’s period drama “Tommy’s Honor,” starring Peter Mullan, and Gillies MacKinnon’s comedy-drama “Whisky Galore,” starring Gregor Fisher and Eddie Izzard. More than 60 British sales companies will be pitching their pics to around 120 international buyers at London Screenings, which runs until Thursday at London’s BFI Southbank.

Other market premiere at London Screenings include comedy “The Hippopotamus,” an adaptation of Stephen Fry’s novel, starring Roger Allam and Matthew Modine, and thriller “The Neighbor,” staring Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Also screening are Cannes titles from leading U.K. sales companies Hanway, Content Media, Metro International, Bankside and Altitude.

London Screenings will also host a “Coming Soon” strand featuring screenings of unseen and work-in-progress titles, giving delegates a sneak peek of new British movies.

The event’s “Breakthrough” strand also returns, providing a platform for emerging British filmmakers to get their work seen by sales companies and festival curators. Titles include the tale of troubled rock ‘n’ roller “Hi-Lo Joe,” tense home-invasion thriller “Us and Them,” and Scottish roadtrip pic “Moon Dogs.”
