THE 2020 BRITISH FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS TO AUSTRALIAN SCREENS WITH OSCAR CONTENDERS & BOX OFFICE HITS
The British Film Festival celebrates the finest filmmakers and acting talent British cinema has to offer in a programme that features some of the most anticipated films of the year – from powerful true stories and literary adaptations to biographies and documentaries.
AMMONITE, a story of forbidden love, starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan as palaeontology pioneer and a young woman in 1840s England.
Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley star in the charming and farcical comedy MISBEHAVIOUR about true story feminist protesters who disrupted the 1970 Miss World beauty competition in London.
A discovery at a school for the daughters of the Nazi elite leads to a series of deadly events in this true story war drama, SIX MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT starring Eddie Izzard and Dame Judi Dench.
From its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival, dramatic thriller THE NEST featuring Jude Law and Carrie Coon, sees life for the British entrepreneur and his American family begin to take a twisted turn after moving into an English country manor.
And SUMMERLAND, a romantic drama set in World War II and starring Gemma Arterton as an English woman who opens her heart to an evacuee in a touching story of love and friendship.
Retrospective screenings, all screened in stunning 4K restoration, include: THE ELEPHANT MAN, an unforgettable story of dignity and survival; and classic cult sci-fi adventure FLASH GORDON, adapted by Lorenzo Semple Jr and Michael Allin from the 1930s comic-strip serial and with a soundtrack composed, performed and produced by Queen. Both titles are celebrating their 40th anniversary.
The British Film Festival returns in 2020 to all three Luna Cinemas locations: Windsor Cinema, Luna on SX and Luna Leederville.
