The BBC First British Film Festival opens in Brisbane tonight

Screening until 16 November at Palace Barracks

The inaugural British Film Festival kicks off tonight at Palace Barracks with a pre-film reception including drinks and music before a screening of Amma Asante’s inspirational true-life romance, A UNITED KINGDOM, starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl).

The festival highlights include:
Due to popular demand, tickets are now on sale for an additional screening of OASIS: SUPERSONIC on November 6 at 9pm at Palace Barracks (and Palace Centro is getting in on the action too with a special screening on October 29 at 6:45pm with great seats still available).
A special focus on Ken Loach, with screenings of the Palme d’Or winning film, I, DANIEL BLAKE, and the British New Wave masterpiece POOR COW. Louise Osmond’s provocative and revealing documentary VERSUS: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF KEN LOACH will complete the focus
This year’s retrospective, LOCAL HEROES, includes 10 films that are a specially curated ode to some of Britain’s cinematic heroes, including: GOLDFINGER (1964), THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT’S WOMAN (1969), A ROOM WITH A VIEW (1985), OLIVER! (1968); and, in classic restorations: ROOM AT THE TOP (1959), HIGHLANDER (1986), THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (1976), SID AND NANCY (1986), and comedy franchise film series giants CARRY ON CAMPING (1969) and CARRY ON UP THE KHYBER (1968).
19 Queensland premieres including the highly anticipated A MONSTER CALLS, based on the acclaimed book by Patrick Ness and starring Britain’s Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), newcomer Lew MacDougall and Liam Neeson as the voice of the monster. As well as THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM, the romantic drama THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS and Jim Sheridan’s THE SECRET SCRIPTURE.
