Ammonite with kate Winslet

The Best of British at Palace Byron

Presented by Palace, the British Film Festival opened on 10 November and will again celebrate the filmmakers, acting talent and stories from the British Isles with a programme featuring the most anticipated films of the year.

The 2020 British Film Festival programme has a strong focus on females, both on and off screen – this festival sees eight films leading the way.

The charming Irish crowd-pleaser, A Bump Along The Way directed by Shelly Love, has an all-female creative team. The film follows a boozy 44-year-old single mother who falls pregnant from a one-night-stand, much to the shame of her buttoned-up teen daughter.

Other films include: a gripping historical drama, A Call To Spy, which follows a new British spy agency at the dawn of WWII; Ammonite from writer/director Francis Lee, set in 1840s England and staring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan.

A folk-horror thriller, Fanny Lye Deliver’d is director Thomas Clay’s third feature and it’s a potent brew of sex, violence and political radicalism; and Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley star in the charming and farcical comedy Misbehaviour, a true story about feminist protesters who disrupted the 1970 Miss World beauty competition in London.

Other great movies on the bill are The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, Six Minutes To Midnight, and Summerland.

Audiences can rock out with two extraordinary music docos – Rockfield: The Studio On The Farm and White Riot. And of course there are strong British dramas too. All up, there are 22 great films – tickets to the 2020 festival are now on sale.

British Film Festival Byron Bay: Nov 10–29, Palace Byron Bay.
