In our Culture Crossover series we pick up examples of projects that delightfully bridge the worlds of technology and culture. We'll be reviewing exhibitions, giving you a heads up on cultural events or talks coming up in the UK and highlighting the best techy art.

Technology seems to mediate everything we do, consume, and are. So it is little wonder that after the strong showing from last year, another tranche of films at the BFI's London Film Festival have science and technology as central themes, along with the related mystery, fatigue, and ethics that many of us are only just beginning to grapple with.

Read on for a selection of features at this year's LFF 2019 from the BFI, opening to the public at venues across London on 2 October, and keep an eye out for our follow-up coverage, including Techworld's pick of short films that meditate on technology.
