When the rain comes and the surf is blown out there is nothing better than being in the quiet and dry surrounds of a cinema. The international festivals presented by Palace are a highlight of the cinematic offerings in Byron throughout the year.

Next month Palace is presenting the beautiful HSBC German Film Festival in collaboration with German Films.  The 2024 line-up features many superb offerings including six films direct from the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale), a selection of the best new German cinema and two exciting retrospective strands – a spotlight on Werner Herzog and a celebration of 70 years of German Films.

Not to be missed for any budding cinephile, the festival will also host Kino for Kids which is a selection of new German language films for children and teens, presented by the Goethe-Institut. Please note that school bookings are available!

From Hilde With Love (In Liebe, Eure Hilde) is the opening night film. Directed by renowned filmmaker Andreas Dresen, the film premiered to widespread acclaim at the recent Berlinale and features an extraordinary performance from Liv Lisa Fries as a young woman drawn into the anti-Nazi resistance movement during World War II.  This film is a compelling historical drama and a remarkable true story.
