British Film Festival 2019

From powerful true stories and literary adaptations to biographies and docos

The first highlights from the British Film Festival feature some of the most anticipated films of the year – from powerful true stories and literary adaptations to biographies and documentaries.

With 20 new release titles plus a retrospective on Dame Helen Mirren and some restored gems, this year’s selection sees British cinema at its best.

The Mini British Film Festival will open nationally with Military Wives from director Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty, 1997). Kristin Scott Thomas leads this inspiring drama about the bravery of the women of war, and the power of the music that saved them.

Closing the festival will be the highly anticipated film The Good Liar. Based on the widely acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle, Oscar-winning screenwriter Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, 1998) directs this wicked thriller featuring magnificent lead performances by Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen.

Presented by Palace, the MINI British Film Festival will screen nationally from 29 October. Such is the popularity of the festival, the 2019 edition will run for an extra week longer until 24 November.
