SYNOPSIS:

FIESTA TIME IS NEAR! THE HSBC SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS THIS JUNE – JULY WITH THE FESTIVAL’S LARGEST LINE-UP TO DATE

The HSBC Spanish Film Festival presented by Palace returns this June to July with a fiesta of films awaiting. The curated line-up, the festival’s largest yet, featuring films from Spain and Latin America and will screen nationally from 11th June.

This year’s festival Centrepiece is THE TEACHER WHO PROMISED THE SEA (El Maestro que Prometió el Mar), which recently won the Audience award at the 2024 Gaudí Awards. The acclaimed drama stars Enric Auquer (the lead from last year’s festival hit Two Many Chefs) and Laia Costa, and tells the true story of Antoni Benaiges, a teacher who brought progressive teaching methods to a small village in 1930s Burgos.

Featuring in the New Spanish Cinema selection is JOKES AND CIGARETTES (Saben aquell), directed by multiple Goya Award winner David Trueba. The drama stars a transformative David Verdaguer as Eugenio, the famous chain-smoking Catalan comedian of the 1960s and 70s, known for his deadpan delivery, tinted glasses and trademark black attire. A special festival preview of this film will take place one week prior to the opening of the festival.

The 2024 Special Presentation is a collection of films that encapsulate the themes of ‘Female Liberation Sexuality and Empowerment’ including UN AMOR and VERA AND THE PLEASURE OF OTHERS (Vera y el placer de los otros). A striking drama from prolific director Isabel Coixet, UN AMOR stars Laia Costa and Hovik Keuchkerian as new neighbours in a village in rural Spain who become entangled in a web of passion.

IN CINEMAS MAY 9 – 29

SYNOPSIS:

The 2024 HSBC German Film Festival proudly presented by Palace in cooperation with German Films, will feature a superb selection of contemporary German cinema. This year the festival, which is pleased to welcome aboard new
naming rights partner HSBC, screens from 7 May – 5 June at Palace Cinemas nationally.

First highlights include the acclaimed new drama from Camera d’Or winning writer/director Claire Burger, FOREIGN LANGUAGE (Langue Étrangère), which arrives direct from the 2024 Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale). Two teenage pen pals in Leipzig and Strasbourg forge a friendship through letters and language exchange in this cross cultural coming-of-age drama, starring Nina Hoss as one of their mothers. Their bittersweet and boundary-testing friendship is strained as they grapple with how to understand themselves and others around them.

Set in contemporary Berlin, comedy/drama ONE FOR THE ROAD stars festival favourite Frederick Lau (in an
outstanding performance) alongside Nora Tschirner. A deeply touching and distinctly authentic story from director Markus Goller (25km/h GFF19), the film alternates between Berlin’s famous bars and sober therapy rooms.

Featuring an all-star cast, DARK SATELLITES (Die stillen Trabanten) is a moving ensemble drama set in nighttime
Leipzig that tells three stories about the impossibility of love. Set amongst the everyday lives of its characters, these beautifully poetic vignettes feature an all-star cast including Nastassja Kinski and Albrecht Schuch.

Set in Switzerland on the cusp of WWII, historical drama LUBO centres around the superb performance of German
star Franz Rogowski as a Swiss street performer. Featuring in the ‘Beyond the Borders’ sidebar, which profiles German language films from other countries, Rogowski’s character seeks justice upon losing his family due to a national campaign to re-educate Yenish (a minority nomadic community) children in Switzerland.

From the popular ‘Kino for Kids’ sidebar, presented by the Goethe-Institut Australia, comes MISSION: SCHOOL OF
FUN (Die unlangweiligste Schule der Welt – Auf Klassenfahrt). There is no such thing as boredom at school as the school day becomes a cinematic adventure in this imaginative tale following nine-year-old action fan Max, adapted from Sabrina J. Kirschner’s bestselling children’s book series

Family friendly film THE FLYING CLASSROOM (Das fliegende Klassenzimmer) is a big-screen adaptation of Erich Kästner’s best-selling children’s and young adult’s book of the same name. This thrilling and entertaining adventure features an outstanding cast of up-and-coming talent and will entertain film goers of all ages.
