2022 celebrates ten years of the Cunard British Film Festival on our shores. Presented by Palace, expect the usual wonderful lineup of some of the biggest and best films from some of the best of Britain's finest filmmakers and actors. Screening dates are 18 Oct to 16 Nov in Adelaide, and 19 Oct to 16 Nov in Brisbane, Byron Bay, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. Find all information on the website where you can register for updates, and stay in touch via Facebook or Instagram.

The first highlights of the Cunard British Film Festival has just been announced and the Opening Night premiere is one that has been capturing the hearts of many through its trailers - [B]Mrs Harris Goes to Paris[/B]. Starring Lesley Manville as the titular Mrs Harris, go with her on her adventure as she embarks on a journey through Parisian high fashion. Currently tickets are on sale for Opening Night events only.


Other highlights include The Banshees of Inisherin from the writer and director of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (a powerful film), and In Bruges, starring Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell. Set against the stunning vistas of the Irish West Coast, this is a twisted tale of friendship gone awry and the trailer will indeed have you intrigued.

Amidst wondering who the next James Bond might be after the powerful performances of Daniel Craig, comes the 60th Anniversary of Bond. You know the name, you know the number, and now you can see the curated lineup showcasing sixty years of iconic style and adventure on the big screen.

Also back in town are The Buoys in a hilarious heartfelt follow-up to the 2019 hit, here comes Fisherman's Friends 2. Based on a true story, it follows the famed sea shanty singing group from Port Isaac, Cornwall. They're on the hunt for new recruits.


Also inspired by true events is The Lost King with a stellar lineup in Sally Hawkins and Steve Coogan. It's a witty drama profiling the discovery of King Richard III's remains beneath a Leicester car park.

Also amongst the official selection is festival favourite Bill Nighy who stars in the life affirming drama Living, a touching tale of a terminally ill man searching for meaning in 1950s London that will inspire and enthral.

Emily is the directorial debut from Frances O'Connor that offers a captivating portrait of Wuthering Heights author Emily Brontë. A haunting drama, it delivers a tale of desire and creativity in 19th-Century England.

The British Film Fest welcomes aboard their naming rights partner Cunard, the iconic and luxurious British cruise line. Like the festival Cunard is the Best of British and offers exceptional entertainment and service with a distinguished blend of British legacy and contemporary style.
