The British Film Festival 2021

The Opening Night film is the Australian Premiere of The Duke. Based on the 1961 true story of 60 year-old taxi driver Kempton Bunton who steals Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London.  Other festival highlights include: the Australian premiere of the highly anticipated Belfast directed by Kenneth Brannagh,  The Last Bus starring Timothy Spall,  Mothering Sunday, a romantic period drama starring Olivia Colman and Colin Firth, the crowd pleasing Falling For Figaro starring Joanna Lumley and a stunning 4K restoration of the classic A Clockwork Orange as part of our 7 From The 70s retrospective.

It’s been incredible to witness the rise in popularity of the British Film Festival in recent years. It has grown to become a significant showcase of cinema from the region. We’re looking forward to sharing a stellar 2021 line up with our audience.
