3 November - 1 December 


The British Film Festival will end the cinematic year in style. Celebrating the finest filmmakers and acting talent the British Isles has to offer, the 2021 programme promises not to disappoint with exquisite performances from favourites including Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, Olivia Coleman, Colin Firth and Timothy Spall.

This year’s line-up features some of the most anticipated films of the year – from powerful true stories and romantic dramas to documentaries and thrillers - with more to be announced.

Opening the Festival is the Australian Premiere screening of The Duke, a heart-warming tale based on a 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, the only theft in the Gallery’s history. This delightful underdog tale features excellent performances from Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren.

Other first Festival highlights include:
The Last Bus, a touching adventure across Britain starring Timothy Spall, which follows the journey of a pensioner who travels from Britain's most Northerly to its most Southerly point, using only local buses.

Olivia Coleman and Colin Firth star in Mothering Sunday, a romantic period drama set in post-World War I England about a maid living who secretly plans to meet with the man she loves before he leaves to marry another woman.

Falling For Figaro, from acclaimed director Ben Lewin, is a romantic comedy starring Danielle Macdonald and Joanna Lumley, about a young woman who quits her job and ends things with her long-term boyfriend to chase her lifelong dream of becoming an opera singer in the Scottish Highlands.

A powerful and emotional drama starring Hugh Bonneville and Keeley Hawes, To Olivia, tells the story of the tribulations behind best-selling novelist Roald Dahl's marriage to Academy Award-winning actress Patricia Neal.

From revered filmmaker Terence Davies, Benediction, is a sumptuous portrait of 20th-century English poet and soldier Siegfried Sassoon, starring Jack Lowden and Peter Capaldi.

British Film Festival Director Kim Petalas said "It’s been great 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 and we’re looking forward to sharing a stellar 2021 lineup with our audience.”

The British Film Festival returns in 2021 to all three Luna Cinemas locations: Windsor Cinema, Luna on SX and Luna Leederville.
