1302 Mini British Film Festival

The MINI British Film Festival returns for its sixth and biggest year yet at the Windsor Cinema and Luna on SX from October 25 to November 14 with a standout selection of prestige film and box office hits from the British Isles.

We are delighted to announce highlights from the 2018 programme, which features some of the most eagerly anticipated British films of the year including powerful true stories, literary adaptations and biographies along with modern classics starring some of Britain’s best known and beloved stars.

The festival will open with COLETTE, which stars Keira Knightley as French writer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, whose provocative debut becomes the toast of Belle Époque Paris in Wash Westmoreland's (Still Alice) mesmerising biopic. Dominic West and Fiona Shaw also feature.

Michael Caine leads an all-star cast including Jim Broadbent, Tom Courtenay, Michael Gambon and Ray Winstone in KING OF THIEVES, the funny, incredible true story of the Hatton Garden robbery, the most daring heist in British criminal history. From the Academy Award-winning director of The Theory of Everything, James Marsh.

RED JOAN, based on the life of British KGB agent Melita Norwood, Academy Award winner Judi Dench and Sophie Cookson portray the life of Joan Stanley, one of the most influential spies in living history. From veteran British stage and screen director, Trevor Nunn. 

This year’s closing night film is the truly funny and touching story of one of Hollywood’s greatest double acts: Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. From BAFTA-winning writer Jeff Pope (Philomena) and starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly, STAN AND OLLIE comes straight from closing the 62nd BFI London Film Festival. 

Australian star Elizabeth Debicki (Breath, The Kettering Incident) plays literary icon Virginia Woolf in VITA AND VIRGINIA, the fascinating true story of the love affair between Woolf and socialite Vita Sackville-West (Gemma Arterton, The Finest) in this sumptuous portrait which screens direct from its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. 

This year’s retrospective, SWINGING SIXTIES features some of the films that ushered in a new era in British filmmaking after post-war austerity and the kitchen sink dramas of the British New Wave. The mid-60s ushered in a more mischievous, spirited cinema, and now more than half a century after this cultural revolution, we turn back the clock to find five films that let in the light on swinging London, including two films starring one of the actors most associated with the period, Michael Caine: THE KNACK… AND HOW TO GET IT (1965); ALFIE (1966); GEORGY GIRL (1966); TO SIR, WITH LOVE (1967); and THE ITALIAN JOB (1969).

Full film listings and session times coming soon.

Tickets on sale 9am Tuesday 25 September.
