MINI British Film Festival

Presented by Palace, the MINI British Film Festival is thrilled to announce the full 2018 program which boasts a sensational selection of the most eagerly awaited films of the year from the British Isles. Featuring a roll call of British cinema royalty as well a host of exciting new talent, this year’s British Film Festival program promises to delight and engage audiences.

The Australian premiere of COLETTE will open the festival. Keira Knightley stars as trailblazing French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, whose provocative debut – falsely credited to her husband – becomes the toast of Paris in this mesmerising biopic, one of several films screening that depict the lives of literary figures.

Closing the festival this year is STAN & OLLIE, coming straight from its world premiere at the 62nd BFI London Film Festival. From BAFTA-winning screenwriter Jeff Pope (Philomena) and starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly, this is the truly funny and touching story of one of Hollywood’s greatest double acts: Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.

This year we pay tribute to British cinema titan Michael Caine with a suite of new and classic films starring the prolific actor who shows no sign of slowing down!
