German Film Festival 2021

Palace Cinemas in collaboration with German Films is excited to again bring the best German-language cinema to you in 2021.  Building on the success of 2019, this edition screens 30 feature films expanding to 18 locations and opening with Daniel Brühl’s  directorial debut – ‘Next Door’.

With 25 Australian premieres and a festival line-up that includes box office hits and award-winning dramas straight from this year’s Berlinale, the festival is a fantastic celebration of German culture and filmmaking. Including productions from neighbouring Austria, the festival showcases the creativity and diversity of the region. From thrillers and historical productions to feel-good comedies, this year’s films will amuse, inspire and entertain.
